Also, can you CC this one too for me because I temporarily

You can, if you like, stay subscribed but turn off mail delivery (in the
mailing list options
http://lists.libre-riscv.org/mailman/options/libre-riscv-dev), which will
allow you to send emails to the mailing list but you won't get any emails
from the mailing list. I've had to do that for quite a few mailing lists.

Also, there has been some talk of getting ML acceleration added:
