If you are interested in testing Emacs under the Debian Ports, then
here's the documentation I put together for the project I work with: . Its the 30-second tour to get
one of the QEMU/Choort guests up and running on a host.

Note well: the host can run Debian 8/Jessie Stable, Testing or
Unstable. The guest must run Unstable. Almost all guests use
'' as the debootstrap URI. X32
is a notable counter example.

As someone else noted, I often have to use echo to write the proper
sources.list in a guest because I don't have emacs:

    echo "deb unstable main
updates" > /etc/apt/sources.list
