Is there a consensus on the way to upload files ready for Perl 5.22 to
be made available?  The Git packages are ready to go, but I'm not sure
if I should be uploading them without a !ready file, or as a test

Or is the idea just that we're going to try to coordinate the many
maintainers worldwide to all release at the same time on Friday?  As
that'll mean it doesn't matter that there's no consensus, it just seems
like it'll also be inordinately painful, too.
