[development] [from support] Staging

I'd like to draw the dev list members' attention to a thread from support 
about staging: 

The reason I am sending this here, is that I believe there is no structured 
and well defined solution to the problem. There are many trials to handle 
this (e.g. even/odd nid numbering scheme, dbscripts), but most of them are 
cumbersome and/or limited in many ways.

I believe this is a very common problem, and that the only real solution 
should come from core. I think the most difficult part here is to separate 
content from configuration. The first step would be how to define what is 
content and what is config (for example - site name - is it a content 
property or a config property?). The next step then would be to find a way to 
transfer config from a staging/dev site onto production, without overwriting 
any content that might have been added there during development.
