Okay, nice.

They're the same actually :)
They changed the name, because they abandoned(?) the idea of using
Risc-V as the Risc-V foundation was hostine towards libre development.
OpenPOWER foundation is just more cooperative.

I just wanted to make sure people are aware of this project, I'm not
competent enough to work on this task, but maybe in the future.

I don't like Rust (yet) nor Go, but I think the project could gain from
using these new languages, just because they're *brand new* and popular
right now - people are looking for projects to contribute to gain
experience and have fun.
