I am very, VERY happy that you see it like that!
No, I am not against tying FreedomBox to DDD - quite the opposite!
My only reason for above comment was to avoid rushing to conclusions in
this process of consensus making which you've started. But I guess I
should just let you do your own talking, that's probably less confusing
I am, however, concerned if we agree on what it means to be a "Debian
Pure Blend": Andreas Tille focus a lot on usability of the Debian Pure
Blends concept where I care most for the technical principles of it.
Andreas worries if my being so obnoxious about the "Pure" part is
hurtful for adoption of the concept, while I on the other hand worry
that his more relaxed interpretation ruins it as happened with its
I am confident that any potential major disagreements on the
interpretation will be revealed in our conversations in the next months.
You are also welcome to ask directly about the concept. I know that I
have been lousy at promoting/defining it, so any questions can only
improve the situation.
 The little-known abbreviation of "Debian Pure Blend" is "DDD".
Deliberately difficult to expand without knowing the concept ahead, as
misinterpretations was the very reason for renaming the concept: Only
the long form is intended for the wider public, the abbreviation only
meant for internal use of those already aware of its meaning. It is a
play on the SPARS code which actually makes surprisingly good sense -
