Many of us in the community are trying to encourage hardware vendors to
take up FreedomBox as commercial activity.  So, this model need not be
ruled out entirely.

I am very happy see a serious consideration to this important aspect of
the project.  Something we have not been doing with our focus elsewhere.
 I agree with your thoughts on the risks and I see that at least a
partial solution is possible.  (More as reply to your other email)

I raise my hand too.  I can contribute code (and discussion :) ).
Although my contributions and interest will be from FreedomBox's point
of view and I am a part-time contributor like others here. (I contribute
code and other bits to FreedomBox currently, I maintain the PageKite
Debian package and I hooked up FreedomBox to PageKite initially).
