I don't believe I am entitled to vote for Ed to be granted this role but
I will offer the opinion that he would make a great project lead -- even
if he has to rely on someone else for detailed RISC-V knowledge. His
help on the AArch64 port was immensely valuable and his experience of
how that port was done should be very helpful.
