1 Introduction 

  These images include several FreedomBox-related projects.  The changes are
  changes made by project contributors in the last week that have made it into
  the test image.  The outstanding TODOs are the changes needed before the
  beta-release is complete.  If you'd like to contribute in any way, fork and
  send me a pull request.

  The image is available at:





  Today's image was produced with:

      $ make weekly-image

2 What Does it Do? 

  Right now, it serves as a privacy protecting proxy.

  The VirtualBox image has built and starts existing the FBX projects on boot.
  The DreamPlug image will do that next week.

3 How do I try it out? 

  There are two ways you can test it out.  The easy way is to use VirtualBox and
  run the image in a virtual machine.  These instructions have more details:


  You can also install the image to your DreamPlug directly.  If you've bought
  your own DreamPlug, you'll probably need to flash the firmware, which requires
  a JTAG.  Follow these instructions:


  These are the users and their passwords:

  root: freedom

      The root user.

  fbx: frdm

      The normal user.  All the FreedomBox tools are stored in =/home/fbx=.

  plinth: config

      The system maintenance user.  Generic FreedomBox maintenance will be
      conducted by this user.

4 Verification 

  You can validate that the files have been downloaded correctly and haven't
  changed since I've published them by checking the files' signatures.

  First, download my key:

      $ gpg --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-key D95C32042EE54FFDB25EC3489F2733F40928D23A

  Then, verify each file's signature:

$ gpg --verify freedombox-unstable_2013.0405_dreamplug-armel-card.tar.bz2.sig freedombox-unstable_2013.0405_dreamplug-armel-card.tar.bz2
$ gpg --verify freedombox-unstable_2013.0405_virtualbox-i386-hdd.tar.bz2.sig freedombox-unstable_2013.0405_virtualbox-i386-hdd.tar.bz2

  The checksums for each file, useful for additional verification, also follow.
