After the evening of tagging failures we're ready for RC2. The reason we do
RC2 is simply because of amount of fixes we needed to backport for the
release. Final release will be done later.

Information for platform maintainers:

- tag: v2.70-rc2
- tag hash 2525f9c5f31e90bcb8f2e8c84558a2bc35e3207c
- locale hash c842f10f94dd7e5b8a5f28b1ece91cff3890aed3 (unchanged since rc1)
- addons hash 8ad356e3324cddef42d41f9b9b588ef1ebd2f8bf (unchanged since rc1)

Here are some magic commands.

# Here we ensure re-tagged tag is in the sources tree.
# We need this because wrong tag might have sneaked into your checkout if
you fetched the updates in-between of initial tag and re-tag.
$ git tag -d v2.70-rc2  # This might fail if you didn't pull tag before
re-tag, that'd be all fine
$ git fetch --tags  # This will fetch proper tag

# Here's the normal pull operations
$ git pull
$ git checkout v2.70-rc2
$ git submodule update --recursive

Output of `git submodule` shouldnt change sice previous AHOY. You HEAD is
to be 19f7f9afab1b36ca8a92e739b7591f694b902dcb after the magic commands.

Use the following name: blender-2.70-RC2-<platform>

On the splash screen after the build you are to see hash "2525f9c".

To get back to normal development use `git checkout master`.

With best regards, Sergey Sharybin
