I've set up a Phabricator instance at http://phab.lowrisc.org/
intent is to better keep track of issues and to better share ideas and
progress with the wider community. Consider it 'beta' for now, and any
suggestions on making best use of it and organisation are most
welcome. You should be able to log in with a Github account. Please do
start kicking the tires and help filling out relevant issues.
For those not familiar with Phabricator, it is a collaboration tool
that originally came out of Facebook
;. I'll happily declare that
it "sucks less" than the other available bug tracking or collaboration
solutions out there.
* Why not Github issues? We have no control over the proprietary
Github platform, and hope to keep track of issues across a wide range
of projects while being searchable from one place.
* Why not report issues directly upstream? For straight-forward bugs
with a non-lowRISC upstream they should be reported to the appropriate
bug-tracker (and ideally tracked on the lowRISC phabricator as well).
However, there's also the need to keep track of feature requests or
lowRISC-specific issues, and the policy of the upstream bugtracker may
not welcome such issues.
* A hope is that the phabricator will keep track of feature requests,
providing a useful starting point for people wanting to contribute.

* In time, I expect we will extend our use of Phabricator to use the
code review components, as used successfully by LLVM, FreeBSD, and
All feedback very welcome,
