How do people handle their configuration files?


new to Qubes OS, I like to have a somewhat “reproducible” way to reconfigure my machine in case of issue or if I move hardware, starting from fresh and using my configuration again.

However, with Qubes, it looks like very difficult to achieve that:

  • many changes are done in /rw per AppVm
  • changes in dom0 are mostly done in /srv and /etc, and it’s not good/practical to sync dom0 data to somewhere else

I’m currently trying to manage the most I can from dom0 salt by writing sls files. But I’m curious to read what other do to handle their OS. :slight_smile:
