Dave said privately that he had a suggestion that he'd mailed to the list once,
and tumbleweed ensued:

Split the maint pumpking job into (at least) 2.

0: Person who deals with everything related to core C code
1: Person(s) who deal with everything related to CPAN modules

Person(s), because that can be split, A-M, N-Z or anything more sophisticated.

Secondly, I think it would help to have people "trained" by making blead
releases. I believe that Rafael is (a) offline today (b) said that he'd
"borrow" the perl5101delta.pod to make the basis of perl5110perldelta.pod,
at which point it's mostly done. So maybe we'll see a git push tomorrow with

I'd asked how to get the faked-up changelog for "stuff in blead but not
merged to maint-5.10", which is the delta of things not yet described
in perl5, because I'd like to feed it into the alpha test BPS changelog
tagger to distribute the problem. However I've not pushed that, partly
because I'm also waiting on a key enhancement to that before it's ready to
request volunteers to help tag). And because I have several other things
I'm trying to do in parallel, which are higher priority than "help ship
5.11.0". And nobody else seems to want this enough to actually project manage
it (as distinct from being technical architect, or helper under direction)
