I've finally started looking at Drupal 8 seriously and I'm particularly interested in the configuration management. I've come across something that could be a little bit problematic and that's regarding custom block content.
I can see that the configuration management system is able to export block configuration - region, theme, weight, visibility etc. however the actual block content does not come across in the config export, which is reasonable and understandable.
On importing that block config to a production site, what appears to happen is the block config is created and a holding message is put in place, reporting the block is broken or missing. Obviously the block content doesn't exist on the production server.
How can custom blocks be migrated from a dev/staging server to a production server? I realise that blocks in Drupal 8 are fieldable entities like nodes and so will need to be migrated in the same way and I understand there is a Migrate API in Drupal 8 but this appears to be built for migrating content from Drupal 6 and 7 sites to Drupal 8 as opposed to Drupal 8 to Drupal 8 sites.
This issue is specifically regarding custom blocks as blocks generated by other modules such as Views will obviously migrate across as configuration.
