Right, the way we usually do this is:

1- a release candidate respin becomes warranted for some reason
(critical missing piece in code tarball, critical bugfix, security issue...)

2- a release candidate window is opened (milestone created in Launchpad)

3- we collectively review the list of FixCommitted stuff in master to
see which fixes are safe and useful to backport, and target
corresponding bugs to kilo-rc2

4- Once the backports are all in, tag the rc2 and close the RC window

Your help is definitely welcome on step 1 (to spot showstoppers) and 3
(to properly judge the risk/benefit of last-minute backports)
