JV
43four months listed as you make a release, it's important
44that you extend the schedule AND B<identify the next release engineer>.
45
46Before adding a release engineer, you B<must> contact them and they
47B<must> consent to ship the release.
48
49When shipping a release, you should include the schedule for (at least)
50the next four releases. If a stable version of Perl is released,
51you should reset the version numbers to the next blead series.
