Whether or not there is RC2 is for the release team to decide, but even
without RC2 issued through the blog etc, there will for sure be new
packages available for testing before the final.

Furthermore, it is also normal process to have enough time for the final
to be tested before issuing it, so it is possible to verify that things
are in shape. Only thing we need to be aware of is the fact that we are
close to summer vacations and in case we fail to issue 5.1.0 in the coming
weeks, there is possibility for a bit longer delay due to some of the
needed developers being away.

Release team meetings are done via IRC, and it should be quite easy to
follow those and participate the process?
