ACK, I think we would totally be interested in adding riscv!

Ok, glad to know these facts.  If there are any riscv hardware
resources available here,
I will update here and maybe need you or other r-b people to help setup it:)

To give you you an idea of how much power we need, see here where there
is a list of the current machines:
https://jenkins.debian.net/userContent/thanks.html, with that much we
are hanging on, and we don't really have much spare resources, so we'd
need something on a similar scale.

Great! But I have to confirm again, if we build riscv64 Debian packages for t.r-b.o
, we need similar scale VM(amd64) firstly? I mean, the real riscv64
hardware board is not considered here for the time being.

The VM resources should be available there.
