+
+If you are preparing to do a release, you can run the
+F<Porting/make-rmg-checklist> script to generate a new version of this
+document that starts with a checklist for your release.
+
+This script is run as:
+
+  perl Porting/make-rmg-checklist \
+      --type [BLEAD-POINT or MAINT or ...] > /tmp/rmg.pod
+
+You can also pass the C<--html> flag to generate an HTML document instead of
+POD.
