Hi Leon,

I see from the riot mailing list that you are working on a mips32 port
of RIOT.

Let me introduce myself, I manage the RTOS / embedded group at
Imagination Technologies and one of the activities my group gets
involved in is helping out open source RTOSes to improve their MIPS
support, for example we have recently improved the MIPS support in FreeRTOS.

TBH RIOT has be off radar somewhat as there was no MIPS support at all,
we have been looking at RTOSes with some MIPS support already (usually
PIC32 which is a somewhat specialised mips32 implementation) and trying
to get the up-to-date with modern mips features.

So its great to see someone working on MIPS support for RIOT and I would
like to offer my assistance, be that loaning or donation of target
hardware, or engineering resource (although we are a small teams) for
patch reviewing and assisting with features etc.

Cheers,

Neil
