[qubes-users] How about creating a platform for sharing notes about Qubes OS usage and customization?

2016-06-17 Thread Arqwer
May be just a dedicated mailing list, or may be something better. Qubes OS customization is specific, because we don't want to harm security. I'd like to have a place, where I can share with others how I did XYZ in qubes, but I don't want to distract everyone here. It would be perfect, if that
