The github page at https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet has some documentation.

I can see quick-install guide for debian-based systems, tutorial video, and manual install instructions.

Just tested installing on Devuan Beowulf now and seemed to go fine, once I worked out that you shouldn’t use “localhost” for the jitsi-meet domain when it asks in debconf, since that is apparently already taken in the existing config somewhere. You just need to assign a separate domain and add that to /etc/hosts as specified in the quick-install guide.

The jitsi meet iOS app allows me to specify a custom jitsi-meet server URL but I haven’t done enough setup to test that out.
