Yes, and they also have the schematics for their boards you'll definitely find useful. I skimmed through the A64 manual (and obviously skipped the irrelevant pages for now), it's big, but well structured.
Btw there's also a lowlevel community specifically for pine devs on their discord (which is also available through matrix and maybe even irc, idk). There's a handful of nice and helpful people there. They also would be happy about a Plan 9 on pinephone, though they probably wouldn't know what to do with it.
My long-term goal is to create a basis for a full Plan 9 phone, that means, building a few basic touch-friendly apps, like a launcher and stuff like that. It will really be a challenge since I want to try capturing the Plan 9 concepts there, for example, it should be easily possible to plumb things, snarf-and-paste, and I'd like to develop a touch-friendly text interface. Obviously there's a long way until I can really run software like that on the pinephone, but due to compatibility I should be able to develop those apps fully on an amd64, run with mouse, and it should work on a pinephone automatically (after recompile).
