Hello Libreoffice developers,

I'd like to port Libreoffice to the RISC-V platform for Linux, but so far it doesn't seem to have any targeted adaptations for this architecture.

RISC-V is an open standard instruction set architecture, which is under rapid development. Distributions including AOSP, Arch Linux, Debian, Gentoo Linux, Fedora, OpenEuler, etc are also actively doing porting work for this architecture.

As a leader in office products among open source tools, is there any porting plans for RISC-V?

I sincerely hope that the Libreoffice team will start thinking about supporting this architecture. I'll start working on this anyway and would like to keep this bug as a tracker.

I don't have any plans myself, but FWIW here's the howto I wrote ages ago to incrementally get the hard bit of a port working https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Lazy_Hackers_Guide_To_Porting

I didn't heard about this. I don't know which type of machine it may run and think working on Arm part would be more useful to help Mac support but I suppose it may reveal some existing bugs in LO.

Anyway, you can contact LO dev mailing list (see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/Mailing_List)
