IMHO the FreedomBox project needs more differenciation features (possibly from the technical point of view).
If it turns into a home-wifi-router, how will it be different from my good old dd-wrt Buffalo that I set up 2 years ago - also for additional security features unavailable on conventional boxes firmware? (Linksys/Openwrt users will pick up their preferred or more recent toy, but probably end up with a similar idea.)
Maybe such differenciation will be in securing a hardware supply for people who want it. Maybe it will be in a no-compromise approach to software security (ala OpenBSD). Maybe it will be another idea... But more and more, it seems to me that - from the technical point of view - they will dissolve in the rest of the opensource ecosystem if they do not pick up something unique.
(BTW, that's not a criticism, I like the idea that the values defended by the FreedomBox project are also present in other community projects.)
