    • contains all the 'release events' in variable forms.rounds (add a ReleaseEvent for every release)
      • Add a round page to the wiki for every release
  • in wiki Round_<n>
    • You need to create a Round_<n> (starting from 1) for every release containing information of the release (target date, Summary of Changes, header info)
