None that I know of, at the moment. It should be fairly easy, and
this should be added to the freedom-maker repository too, before too
long (or Freedom-Maker's config should be broken out into specific
See mk_dreamplug_rootfs  for details. The important bits are (0)
installing packages, (1) copying service configurations to the running
system, (2) creating the user, and (3) installing the projects:
MAKE SURE YOU SET ANY ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES APPROPRIATELY. THIS IS

0. See the packages line in the multistrap config :
: apt-get install base-files netbase openssh-server zile wget \
iproute net-tools hostname module-init-tools wget resolvconf \
udev isc-dhcp-client ifupdown rsyslog devio initramfs-tools \
uboot-mkimage parted dosfstools apt jwchat prosody \
liblua5.1-sec1 monkeysphere iputils-ping haveged python \
python-cheetah pandoc python-simplejson make isc-dhcp-server \
dialog locales-all uaputl dnsmasq iptables logrotate \

: rsync -av $source/ $target
2. Create the user:
: adduser fbx
3. Install projects:
: # add projects to the image to make it a useful FreedomBox.
: # cleanup and finalize the image so it boots correctly.
