That's the first pass at what the repo-related APIs will look like in

thoughts or questions. If anyone wants I can take some time on
Thursday's deep dive and walk through them.

Those look quite usable for the GSv3 use case, although I suspect I will eventually need get_*_config utility APIs to match the update_*_config ones.

I was initially concerned about the 'one importer' limitation (since GSv3 will likely have two alternative distribution channels for content, potentially within the same repo, depending on whether or not we're willing to release the information to Akamai for transfer). However, I realised it makes more sense to deal with the management of multiple distribution channels within the importer itself on a case-by-case basis rather than trying to define a general purpose mechanism for cooperation between arbitrary importers.
