New member request for participation info

Hello,

I've just joined the RISC-V technical community and the V Extension
Task group. I have very substantial experience in careful technical
documentation (I wrote the RFCs for gzip and DEFLATE, and was one of
the few non-Adobe reviewers for the PostScript and PDF reference
manuals). What I'm hoping to contribute to the RISC-V community is
primarily documentation review.

I know that the V extension(s) are quite close to release for public
comment, but I would still like the opportunity to review them in
detail -- another pair of eyes can sometimes spot things that have
been overlooked. Could someone please tell me (1) where to find the
current spec drafts, and (2) the best way to share any observations?

Thanks -

Try gitrhub.com/riscv/riscv-v-spec.  There is also software stuff like riscv/rvv-intrinsic-doc that is defining compiler intrinsics for the vector spec.

Like bitmanip, you can file issues or pull requests which is probably the best approach.  Or you can send email to this list.  Or raise issues in the meeting.

You can find the "Tech Groups Calendar" on the wiki, along with a lot of other useful info like specifications status.
