My setup experience
1) Installed as stated in the OP (minus the skipping setup part)
2) Staying at Google boot logo long enough to make me think there was an issue - maybe 10 seconds.
3) Boot animation was very slow and choppy at first, but then sped up - also make me think there may be an issue.
4) Initial boot took about 15 minutes, then sat at a black screen for about 4 minutes after that. Then the blue setup screen came on.
5) I deviated from skipping setup and put in my info, selected a backup to restore and went through the steps. The setup completed successfully and the backup is now restoring. Going to leave it plugged-in while restoring and doing it's behind the scenes stuff, but so far this ROM is super smooth!

Bottom line - follow the OP and BE PATIENT!

If you use any gapps other than mentioned in OP.. You might get black screen initially. We will need to wait for open gapps to resolve their issues - I don't wish to integrate same in ROM for various reasons.

I'm using the Gapps listed in the OP. The ROM is smooth sailing so far. Looking forward to giving it a more thorough run tomorrow. Thanks for the release!
