This is a delightful guide, I'm going to print it tonight and see how well I can apply it to a fresh Qubes OS install - the latest release includes Debian templates that work flawlessly as far as I can tell. Not all will be applicable but reading through it and testing what works will definitely be educational. Thank you for sharing!
