welp my brain just melted trying to figure this out.  Searching in qubes-users 
I just see unman telling people its easy, but can you link me to the actual 
instructions for building the template? apparently I;m too dumb to find them.  
I'm at that github page wanting to shoot myself right now. maybe i need git 
instructions too lol.

I've always compiled gresc on baremetal debian maybe I should just skip to 
coldkernel attempt?  But I;ve already failed trying to compile a basic kernel 
in Qubes so I think I'm probably just gonna pass man. :(
