Thanks for clarifying.

No. The backport is offered as an aid for potential FreedomBox
developers interested in unofficially(!) experiement with Tahoe-LAFS on
an otherwise stable system.
The debian.jones.dk repository is deliberately *not* signed to emphasize
that using backports is dirty and risky.
(as a related note, I consider backports.debian.org as dirty too, and
find it problematic that Debian has no easy mechanism to flag if an
install is dirty - independent on whether _delivery_ of it is safe).
In my opinion FreedomBox should be a Debian Pure Blend, which implies
that it uses only Debian, is only configured by Debian, and is
distributed by Debian.
I disagree with your possible suggestion that FreedomBox as shipped to
our end-users should use Debian unstable. I feel that only a FreedomBox
installed from Debian stable (and *only Debian stable, no addons of any
kind) should be considered a stable FreedomBox installation.
Yes, that means I expect FreedomBox to take years to mature. Until then
we can make various experimental, unstable and testing installs - and
dirty unofficial mixtures like installs "infected" with material from
the debian.jones.dk repository.
