This is a sub-task of #1775842: [meta] Convert all variables to state and/or config systems
According to #1802750: [Meta] Convert configurable data to ConfigEntity system content types as well as options on them should go into config entities. The proper issue for that is #111715: Convert node/content types into configuration
node_rank_ . $rank is not related. New issue over here: #1831632: Convert node_rank_ $rank variables to use configuration system
First pass. Ugly, I'm sure :)
The last submitted patch, node_t_cmi-1831600-4.patch, failed testing.
Please note that node types will be converted to config entities (see #2). This means that things like title, description and options will be stored together in a unified way. Therefore we should wait until #111715: Convert node/content types into configuration is done.
That issue also takes care of these settings I think, so closing as a duplicate.
