I find the best way to install is to tar over my current installation. Since the tar is setup w/ a subdirectory, I use this command:
tar xvf openoutreach-7.x-1.0-rc7-core.tar.gz --strip-components=1 -C drupal

to strip the first directory

Issue summary: View changes

When you xtract (tar xvf) over the top of your existing installation what happens to files and directories that are already there? ie: settings.php file, modules in sites/all/ modules. any files in sites/default/files and sub-folders? Will it leave them? overwrite them? Ask about overwrites?
