By default, the VMs do not start because the virtual disks are not set to readonly. This is only needed when using the ISO though. Might stay this way as long as the user is correctly advised to change to set the disk to readonly mode.

journal keeps metadata about each message, so it's possible to avoid it with `journalctl -p err -b` (I've added `-b` to avoid listing messages from previous boot).

marmarek added a comment to T913: bug: not all files form /etc/skel are copied to /home/user / create user "user" at boot time.

Can you give some more context here? Is it the problem that user is created too early (before /etc/skel is fully populated)? Or is it a problem that it's created at all? Should there be a difference between Qubes and non-Qubes case?
