Hi,

I've just joined lowRISC, where I'm working on LLVM support for RISC-V and some other related things. That means that, after settling in, I will resume my efforts to port LDC/druntime/Phobos to RISC-V. Some of the RISC-V LLVM features required for D will also start landing soon (e.g. atomics support), which will minimize the amount of workarounds I have to use.

I'll also be in a better position to contribute to LDC more broadly, as I'll have a better understanding of LLVM.

Cheers,
Luís

Nice, looking forward to it.

Nice, it would be worthwhile to make ssh access available to LDC/GDC devs on a RISC-V board somewhere, so we can pitch in with the port. I'd have rented a RISC-V VPS instead, but there's none available. ;)
