42four months listed as you make a release, it's important
43that you extend the schedule AND B<identify the next release engineer>.

45Before adding a release engineer, you B<must> contact them and they
46B<must> consent to ship the release.
47
48When shipping a release, you should include the schedule for (at least)
49the next four releases. If a stable version of Perl is released,
