Keep up to date with lowRISC

The best ways of keeping up with lowRISC developments are:

Mailing lists

Development discussion takes place on the lowrisc-dev mailing list. Archives are here and you can subscribe here. There’s also relevant discussion on the RISC-V mailing lists.

We used to use IRC (#lowRISC on but mostly don’t now. We have an open group chat on Zulip, which community members are welcome to join.

Source code

You can find source code for lowRISC projects on our GitHub organisation page. We’re also active on the upstreams of a range of other projects such as LLVM and the Ariane RISC-V core design.

The lowRISC community

The lowRISC community has always worked to be a welcoming and respectful community, and we want to ensure that doesn’t change as we grow and evolve. To that end, we have a few ground rules that we ask people to adhere to:

  • be friendly and patient,

  • be welcoming,

  • be considerate,

  • be respectful,

  • be careful in the words that you choose and be kind to others, and

  • when we disagree, try to understand why.

This isn’t an exhaustive list of things that you can’t do. Rather, take it in the spirit in which it’s intended - a guide to make it easier to communicate and participate in the community.
