> I'm a happy to make an image for the Pi but I could use a little guidance as to where to start, etc. The worst part for me is the size of the default FS since Raspbian auto-sizes. I guess I could reduce it to fit (say) 8gb but that's less than ideal.

FreedomBox is part of Debian, not Raspbian.

Great if you are interested in testing _FreedomBox (i.e. Debian-based) 
on Raspbian hardware, and help improve the FredomBox documentation 
(hint: it's a wiki and you are most welcome to create an account and 
help edit).

If instead you want to make something _like_ FreedomBox work on Raspbian 
then I guess that is great too - but please discuss that with the 
developers of Raspbian which is not here.

Hope that helps :-)
