Is there any spec/plan that formalizes the UI?

Right now it seems to be mostly based on contributions by Jonas and 
Nick. And the random wishlist of kitchen sink ideas in the wiki :-) In 
addition to the annual DebConf video, I really wish the FBF would show 
up here every few months, with a bit more steerage for this project. :-)

I think the OP might have some basic Linux dev skills to learn, and to 
separate from the FreedomBox list to Debian- or GNU-centric lists/IRC/etc.

But that point aside, and given the Subject line's question, I think the 
OP was asking for the manifest of official binaries included in the 

Perhaps the answer is, as you say, there is no command line. Pointing 
Jack to the FreedomBox's UI is also useful, in addition to pointing to 
generic manpage usage for dev tools that won't be in the user's FreedomBox.

At least that's how I'm misunderstanding this thread. :-)
