"The application for funding from NLnet and the Next Generation Internet initiative from the European Commission, from back in November of last year, has been approved. It means that we have EUR 50,000 to pay for full-time engineering work to be carried out over the next year, and to pay for bounty-style tasks. For the right people, with the right skills, there is money now available."

@orionwl there is now a u-boot-sifive package in Debian experimental and also 'opensbi' (RISC-V Open Source Supervisor Binary Interface).
Maintainer of opensbi and u-boot also did a presentation wrt RISC-V in Debian: https://archive.org/details/latch_2019-RISCV_in_Debian
There is now also a section "Setting up a riscv64 virtual machine with u-boot and opensbi" added on https://wiki.debian.org/RISC-V (and some other updates)
There's also reasonable activity on #debian-riscv (OFTC)

We've had compiled z-machine files, but never the original ZIL. https://github.com/historicalsource
