Looks quite promising!

Please consider adding it somewhere appropriate below 
http://wiki.debian.org/FreedomBox - IMO makes good sense to add it there 
already now where your code is materialized even if lacking security 
features still.  Then when you feel it is closer to being useful for 
general consumption file an ITP or RFP bugreport as documented at 

One thing I noticed while briefly skimming your website is that the nice 
graphics is licensed only for non-commercial use.  This is not 
compatible with Debian Free Software Guidelines so it will be easier to 
package if you ensure that your code is usable even with those graphics 
parts stripped - or that you reconsider the licensing of graphics, but 
you may obviously have your reasons for picking it in the first place.

Kind regards,

 - Jonas
