I just would like to share this little tool with you:
It will allow you to write the Drone settings to a file, then apply and source control it, in a declarative way. No more need to manually enable a repo, configure settings, or create secrets.
For example: https://github.com/johnmarcou/drone-setup/blob/master/drone.setup.example.yml
It uses the envvar token and hits the Drone API, like drone-cli does.
