Crowdfunding for m68k support in the Mold linker
« on: October 19, 2022, 11:41:06 AM »
Hi!

There is a new linker called "Mold" [1] that is being developed by Rui Ueyama, one of the core developers of LLVM [2].

Rui has said in a discussion on Github that he is accepting donations [3] and that he is willing to add m68k support to Mold if we can raise $1000.

I have already started a crowdfunding campaign in the German a1k.org Amiga forum and we have already collected $250 [4]. If we can get another $750, Rui will start
working on m68k in Mold.

So, if anyone is willing to support this effort, please go his sponsoring site [5] and make a one-time donation. If you have made a donation, please let me or Rui
know so that we can track who has sent money to support the m68k backend.

Thanks,
Adrian

Small update. We have already collected $500 and need another $500 to reach the funding goal.

So, if anyone is interested in getting m68k support in a modern linker, please support the project.
