While rc2 is an improvement on rc1, I am -1 on this particular rc.  Rationale:

This rc contains many patches not yet committed to trunk. This would
cause the next major release (0.22) to be a feature regression against
our latest stable release (203), were 0.22 released soon.

This rc contains many patches not yet reviewed by the community via
the normal process (jira, patch against trunk, merge to a release
branch). I think we should respect the existing community process that
has been used for all previous releases.

This rc introduces a new development and braching model (new feature
development outside trunk) and Hadoop versioning scheme without
sufficient discussion or proposal of these changes with the community.

We should establish new process before the release, a release is not
the appropriate mechanism for changing our review and development
process or versioning .

I do support a release from branch-0.20-security that follows the
existing, established community process.
