Leaving the public cloud

All FreedomBox code should be completely Free, stable, well integrated with the system, and well maintained (e.g. regarding security bugfixes). This is ensured by using only official stable Debian packages.

This page tracks availability in Debian of FreedomBox-related user-facing services, grouped by the functionality they provide (a.k.a. the non-free equivalent they replace).
