48four months of releases of bleadperl. If there are fewer than
49four months listed as you make a release, it's important
50that you extend the schedule AND B<identify the next release engineer>.
51
52Before adding a release engineer, you B<must> contact them and they
53B<must> consent to ship the release.
54
55When shipping a release, you should include the schedule for (at least)
56the next four releases. If a stable version of Perl is released,
57you should reset the version numbers to the next blead series.
