We went through this here a month ago. Doing a minimal installation is specific
to each Distro, not TDE, so "it" would have to be a bunch of pages, or a more
complicated page few or no single people could make alone.

For Stretch, the cmdline options I use on
that include string "install" will cause a truly minimal installation, to which
you need to add Xorg from Debian, to have a working base from which to run TDE.

If Devuan's installer is Debian-based, likely the same options would be
applicable. If not, Devuan's own docs, help forum and/or mailing list archive
ought to address such need.
