Looking at the records it seems that the River PPMC is still just the
three mentors, but that doesn't stop the community from voting to
accept the codebase. Only the PPMC members have binding votes, but at
least to me also any non-binding -1 vote with a reasonable rationale
would be enough to veto the motion until better consensus is reached.

Of course, if anyone feels strongly that they should have a binding
vote instead of a non-binding one in this vote, please let me know and
I'll withdraw the vote until the PPMC has been updated.

It probably would be cleaner if you all had already been given commit
access and made PPMC members by now, but the current status shouldn't
block things as long as there's wide consensus that the contribution
should be accepted. Things get trickier if there isn't consensus, in
which case the actual composition of the PPMC would be more important.

+1, everything seems to be in place for that.
