5689416c 53This schedule lists the release engineers for at least the next
d29a1dbb 54four months of releases of bleadperl. If there are fewer than
07962d9a
JV
55four months listed as you make a release, it's important
56that you extend the schedule AND B<identify the next release engineer>.
57
58Before adding a release engineer, you B<must> contact them and they
59B<must> consent to ship the release.
60
61When shipping a release, you should include the schedule for (at least)
62the next four releases. If a stable version of Perl is released,
63you should reset the version numbers to the next blead series.
