Hi Patrik,

IERS always issues the bulletins at least five months in advance of a
leap second, but generally not more than six (in one instance they
released an announcement just under five months in advance of NO leap
second).  At that point it is a matter of where we are with the TZ
release cycle, but I think the maintainer (Paul, CC'd) does tend to give
it some priority.
