Does anyone object to me naming myself PEP czar for PEP 3144?
“Tsar is a title used to designate certain European Slavic monarchs or
supreme rulers.”

Is this our official word?

PEP czar/tsar and BDFOP (Benevolent Dictator for One PEP) are the two
names I've seen for the role. I don't have a strong preference either
way (just a mild preference for 'czar').

Also, "Czar" is commonly used in US politics as an informal term for the top official responsible for an area. "Drug Czar" is only the most familiar:
