to RISC-V SW Dev
We, the PLCT Lab and Tarsier Team, are about to start two projects
on July 1, 2021:
1. Porting Firefox to RV64GC, including spidermonkey w/ JIT support.
2. Porting Chromium browser and ChromiumOS to RV64GC.
All the roadmaps, development meetings, CI/BuildFarm, source codes and
issue trackers will be open in July. All the codes will be submitted
to upstreams eventually.
The motivation and necessity behind these projects is that we expect
there will be RISC-V laptops coming out next year. The ISCAS is
seeking to build 2000 RV64GC laptops before the end of 2022. I am
focusing on the software side. There are still a few 'big absence' in
the RISC-V software ecosystem which should be supported when the
hardwares is ready. The availability of mainstream browsers is
currently the highest demand we heard.
Collaborations are welcome! Feel free to name the 'big absence' in the
RISC-V software ecosystem so that we can do some porting work with
 Tarsier Team is a new team in ISCAS, which is focusing on porting
and optimizing Linux distributions for RISC-V.
