Here’s my proposal for release (based on looking at the 1.53 schedule, with some extra time inserted):

June 16: Master closed for new libraries and breaking changes
June 30: Master closed, except by permission
July 7: 1.56.0 rc1
July 8: Master open for bug fixes and doc changes
July 21: Master closed, except by permission
July 28: 1.56.0 rc2
August 4: 1.56.0 release
