Keep in mind, it's not FreedomBuddy 3.0, it's FreedomBuddy 0.3, because
it's not done yet.  When it's done, it'll be 1.0, but we're only a third
of the way there.

Yeah, the main website needs a number of links that aren't there.  I'm
hoping we'll be able to fix that during the hackfest.

The READMEs on each project's page [0, 1] should help explain, but:

Freedom Maker: The stuff that turns a computer into a FreedomBox.  It
assembles all the moving parts into a cohesive whole that's useful to

FreedomBuddy: How FreedomBoxes that trust one another can find each
other.  You and your friends will be able to move just about anywhere
and still be able to connect to each others' FreedomBoxes, without ever
needing to rely on a central service to do so.  This makes the
FreedomBuddy network very hard to shut down.
