I think at the moment the source file (proposal.md) is a bit more informative
because it has references to source code, and, more importantly, some URLs to
relevant projects such as the simulator and libc-test. The PDF still has the
URLs, but they are typeset the same as normal text.

It looks nice. I have two non-essential comments:
- in week 1 tasks, you point out "Implement the startup code, function
prologue and epilogue"; the comment references musl's crt startup code, but
I don't see what the prologue/epilogue refer to; normally the compiler emits
them, unless I'm misunderstanding what you say;
- I think it would be nice if you could add URLs for other risc-v software
projects relevant to this work, namely the toolchain porting efforts
(riscv-gnu-toolchain?), and perhaps the kernel port if there's a single URL
for that (sorry I'm not familiar with RISC-V).
