The Loongson CPU is not just a MIPS64, it needs special fixes on compilaton (see this http://sourceware.org/ml/binutils/2009-11/msg00387.html ) , and it has extra multimedia instruction-set that should be supported by us.
So I suggest the primary target Loongson, and, the next step, adding a standard MIPS32-softfloat target for those mips-soc-based mobile devices. Even a multilib (/lib32, /lib64) solution is considerable.
Fedora on MIPS
Efforts are being taken to re-instantiate doing the Fedora MIPS port. The current content is kept for historic reference.
Steps to take
Tom went on to show how contributors can start a secondary architecture: Step 1: Form the architecture team (Done) Step 2: Get hardware for the architecture (In progress) Step 3: Bootstrap the architecture (Partly done) Step 4: Set up a Koji buildserver cluster (In progress) Step 5: Create a tracker bug in Fedora bugzilla (Trac for now, since not an official 2nd port) Step 6: Create a a mailing list (Done) Step 7: Connect the architecture buildserver cluster to the primary cluster Step 8: Get cvs access for the architecture team, set milestones
