5689416c 46This schedule lists the release engineers for at least the next
d29a1dbb 47four months of releases of bleadperl. If there are fewer than
07962d9a
JV
48four months listed as you make a release, it's important
49that you extend the schedule AND B<identify the next release engineer>.
50
51Before adding a release engineer, you B<must> contact them and they
52B<must> consent to ship the release.
53
54When shipping a release, you should include the schedule for (at least)
55the next four releases. If a stable version of Perl is released,
56you should reset the version numbers to the next blead series.
