Collaboration with SiFive

Today, we're excited to announce a collaboration with
SiFive, a company founded by the creators of
RISC-V and dedicated to open source silicon. In the rest of this
update, we'll describe the collaboration in detail, what it means for
the Open-V microcontroller, and what it means to you, our supporters.
This collaboration lowered the required funding a bit, and in general looks like an overall improvement of both Open-V and the ecosystem, but they still need everybody's help for the campaign to succeed.

(I do wonder — and hope — if they are still working on something else to reduce further the amount of money needed from the crowdfunding)
