Thanks for the info!
I planned on going with RaspBian for this project. :)

The only caveat here would be if Indy10 will actually build and
function correctly in RaspBian.
I will find that out in due time. I don't have the hardware available
right now since I am travelling, will purchase a dedicated Pi2B as
soon as I return to home base.
