[Librecores Discussion] FOSS and proprietary FPGA verification as a service

Hi folks,

Has there been any recent discussion around enabling FOSS projects to
simulate and build e.g. CI around the classical proprietary FPGA
tools?
E.g. Mentor ModelSim, Aldec Riviera, Synopsys VCS. Given that it seems
there will be a long time until Xilinx/Intel start supporting
open-source tools, it might be pragmatic to discuss enabling something
like this.

If we could for example figure out a way to offer build hosts to
open-source projects, are there verification vendors that would be
interested you think?
I know of https://www.edaplayground.com/ as the prior work which makes
me hopeful that maybe this is something that can be done.

Thoughts?
