This project contains reverse-engineered fully open-source ROMs that can be used with emulators. . Currently the only supported platform is the C64, but as the code is very modular, support for additional platforms might be added in the future. I tested the ROMs with a couple of games/applications, and many were already working fine (though some are not starting or crashing). With these ROM files in main, this would also allow vice (maintainer CC'ed) to move from contrib to main, as it can then be used meaningfully with only free software.
