Correct on the older templates. The oldest I would consider is fc25 and wheezy
etc.. for it to be working correctly without bug I would expect to be able to
choose all none EOL templates together and have it build. Would need 100+ gigs
but it should work. That is what I am working towards.
My original issue with setup script might have been part network and part gpg
sig issue. Just would like to know and then update the offical Doc etc pages
with correct info where needed.
The issue with archlinux is it is referenced at least twice in other docs as to
being the most uptodate instructions for building qubes and templates.
Basically much of the docs are a mess as they have conflicting missing dif info.
