The RISC-V Foundation and the Linux Foundation agreed to a collaboration to accelerate open source development for the open source RISC-V ISA, starting with RISC-V starter guides for Linux and Zephyr.

The RISC-V Foundation and the Linux Foundation announced a partnership to “accelerate open source development and adoption of the RISC-V ISA” and “grow the RISC-V ecosystem with improved support for the development of new applications and architectures across all computing platforms.” The Linux Foundation will advise RISC-V on “neutral governance and best practices for open source development” and provide resources for training programs, infrastructure tools, community outreach, and marketing and legal expertise.
One early collaboration between the nonprofit open source organizations is the joint development of “Getting Started” guides for running Linux and the LF’s open source Zephyr RTOS on RISC-V. The guides will be unveiled at the RISC-V Summit in Santa Clara, Calif. on Dec. 3 during training classes. The classes will be hosted by led by project contributors from RISC-V Foundation Founding Platinum Members Antmicro, Google, Microchip Technology, and Western Digital, in addition to the Linux Foundation.
