This is exactly what linux-libre does and they actually reference it. So
I assume they plan to use that kernel (which is used by Libre GNU/Linux
Distributions. (Trisquel, gNewSense,..))

Looking at the "app-installation-script.sh" it checks the distribution
you're running and adds unofficial repositories to your system. I think
the way of FreedomBox to upstream everything is far more sustainable.

If they use Debian as a base, they'll profit from the work that the
FreedomBox Project did. For now the only way to adopt something from
that project is to look at their configuration and try to learn from it.
And by doing that I found an interesting piece of config. They use one
IP address per service. I thought that's a nice idea. This makes the

Can you think of any downsides of such a config?
