I got the Freedombox as far as installing the OwnCloud Debian package
using the web admin interface on request.  The web request will time
out, but the installation will keep going in the background.  OwnCloud
is not automatically configured, so when the first person visit the
installed owncloud instance, she get to pick password and configure
the database. :) This should be fixed, of course. :)

I suspect we must have several options, and one of them I hope to get
working is pagekite. :)

Happy hacking
