5689416c 49This schedule lists the release engineers for at least the next
d29a1dbb 50four months of releases of bleadperl. If there are fewer than
07962d9a
JV
51four months listed as you make a release, it's important
52that you extend the schedule AND B<identify the next release engineer>.
53
54Before adding a release engineer, you B<must> contact them and they
55B<must> consent to ship the release.
56
57When shipping a release, you should include the schedule for (at least)
58the next four releases. If a stable version of Perl is released,
59you should reset the version numbers to the next blead series.
