The docs on template reinstallation indicate that QSB 050 means it is
not safe to automatically reinstall templates:
https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/reinstall-template/

However QSB 050 suggests that patches were pushed out some time ago:
https://www.qubes-os.org/news/2019/07/24/qsb-050/

Indeed `sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-dom0-security-testing`
says no new patches are available.

Does this mean that (contrary to the template reinstall docs) it is safe
to use automatic reinstallation now?

Submitted a doc update. Believe it's safe now too.

Yes, it is safe as long as you have core-admin-client v4.0.26, which
migrated to stable on 2019-08-31 (or newer). For details, please see:

https://github.com/QubesOS/updates-status/issues/1241#issuecomment-526871872

The documentation has been updated. (Thank you, awokd.)
