5689416c 52This schedule lists the release engineers for at least the next

54four months listed as you make a release, it's important
55that you extend the schedule AND B<identify the next release engineer>.
56
57Before adding a release engineer, you B<must> contact them and they
58B<must> consent to ship the release.
59
60When shipping a release, you should include the schedule for (at least)
61the next four releases. If a stable version of Perl is released,
62you should reset the version numbers to the next blead series.
