99     <li>Formation of the Gentoo Publication Team. This is a small entity of developers (3) that
100     are responsible for the bi-monthly deployment of the publication. An <em>example</em> of some
101     suggested guidelines are as follows:<ul>
102     <li>Each release will be 8 (eight) pages, front and back.</li>
103     <li>The publication will be shipped on the last day of Jan, Mar, May, Jul, Sep, Nov</li>
104     <li>The deadline for article submission will be on the last day of the month prior
105     to the date of publication</li>

108     <li>The editorial team is responsible for the content and delivery schedule requirements
