[Arm-netbook] Have you checked out this Open Source RISC-V-based 32-bit μC?

I just got a reponse. They re-iterated that there are "no binary blobs
or proprietary microcode on the Open-V microcontroller". Interestingly
they also said "for RYF certification, we hadn't really considered it
because the FSF likely has no interest in
certifying microcontrollers. Of course, now we're curious, so we'll
get in touch with them and find out!"

I hope this is a good sign?
