No, I believe there is not currently such page.

Are you familiar with wikis? We use the Debian wiki, with our starting 
page being this one: http://wiki.debian.org/FreedomBox

Perhaps you would care to have a first go of writing such page?  Don't 
be shy: Worst thing that might happen is that others find your attempt 
too lousy and improve it - perhaps even rewrite it completely.  Point 
then is that you did great by triggering others ;-)
