After many years of effort, I am happy to announce that Debian
riscv64
is now an official
architecture
!

This milestone is not the end of the journey but rather the beginning of a new
one: the port will need to be rebootstrapped in the official archive, build
daemons will have to be reinstalled and handed over to
DSA, many bugs will need to be fixed. If everything
goes well, the architecture will eventually be released with
Trixie. Please note that this
process will be long and will span several months.

I would like to take this opportunity to thanks everyone who contributed to
this significant milestone, including individuals and Debian teams, as well as
the organizations and companies that provided us with resources (by rough
chronological order):
MIT CSAIL,
Sifive,
Mullvad,
tetaneutral.net,
OSU Open Source Lab,
Microchip,
BeagleBoard.org Foundation,
RISC-V international,
PLCT lab,
StarFive,
and Metropolitan Area Network Darmstadt.
