Basically, yes. No change from previous releases here AFAIK.

It shouldn't affect bug fixes, unless they violate one of the freezes
(like string freeze).

The definitions of each freeze are linked from the release status page:

Not sure I understand the question.

The idea of the launchpad bug tag of kilo-rc-potential is to stop
things that stop us releasing kilo. Things targetted for kilo-3 are
basically saying don't ship kilo-3 without fixing this. Everything is
just like previous releases.

We have the trivial patch list, that lives here, but thats purely an
addition to our primary tracking:
