Thanks for initiating this thread. Below are few questions from my side - 


1. Is the theme provided by Adobe here - https://github.com/adobe/aem-site-template-standard, ready and allowed to be used in Production for launching client websites?

2. In addition to above, are there any other templates available anywhere that can be used for Production websites?

3. The videos and the documentation only shows the steps until Publishing of the website created by theme, however, we know that it takes more than that to launch an actual site on AEM like mapping configs, dispatcher configs etc. So, backend development (configurations) are definitely required and its not a fully backend-free approach. Isn't it?

4. Is there any documentation anywhere listing all the remaining config that will be required to actually launch a site using this quick site template approach?
