Re: [PATCH v4 2/6] Update terminology and specification tables

Hi Greg,


All these links are in one place so can be easily updated once specs are ratified/approved.


We certainly can’t finalize RISC-V platform spec having links to draft specifications.

When I try some of the added links, I end up at "404" pages.


Many of these links are to revs of spec's that are current but only temporary - until superseded by a later rev.


Ultimately these links should all be to ratified/approved documents - which by definition won't materially change.  But in the meantime the current links are quickly going to become stale over the next couple of months.  And a couple have already been superseded by more recent revs.  These links should instead be to the github pages from which one can then find the PDF and/or adoc of the latest draft of the document.




2) Add links to unprivileged and privileged specifications
3) Add link to legacy PLIC specification
4) Add links to AIA and ACLINT specifications
