After a fresh install of d8 with several core modules activated (block, breakpoint, database logging, field, filter, internal page cache, node, system, toolbar, update manager, user, views, views ui), extracting the config indicates that all the above are off:
# drush8 @myproject.dev config-get core.extension module: block: 0 breakpoint: 0 config: 0 datetime: 0 dblog: 0 entity_reference: 0 field: 0 file: 0 filter: 0 image: 0 node: 0 page_cache: 0 system: 0 text: 0 toolbar: 0 update: 0 user: 0 views: 0 views_ui: 0 minimal: 1000 theme: stark: 0 classy: 0 seven: 0
stark is, in fact, the default activated theme and
seven is the admin theme.
The plan is to dump the config from the dev server and then import it into the stage server; but this is tricky if the config dump from dev is "blank."
Is this what's supposed to happen?
I'm using drupal version 8.0.0-beta12, and drush version 8.0.0-beta14.
