I am throwing this out there as a proposal, not necessarily to make it on
the MVP list, only for people to tell me to take a hike. I like hikes!

There is an incredible amount of boilerplate in setting up a pulp plugin. I
would like to see this decrease as much as possible.

For this iteration, I would like to bring up the admin client.

Maybe I don't see the full picture, but it seems theoretically possible for
the pulp admin client to function at a minimal level without having an
admin extension installed. In my limited experience, it seemed like a lot
of the information we put in an admin extension can be queried from the

So my proposal would be: come up with a primitive set of operations that
are provided by the admin client for all plugin types and all their
implemented units.

The operations could be:
* Repository level: create, delete, enumerate/search; add distributors,
edit importer configuration etc.
* Content level: query, upload, delete, copy
* Others I can't think of right now

Those operations could be extended if the plugin supports a unique

Why am I bringing this up? Because the REST API was mentioned, and said API
may have to be extended with additional information to enable the baselevel
functionality of the admin client to work.

/me preemptively goes for a hike
