First off, thanks for putting this together, it is a good initiative to document the processes we follow.

Some minor corrections/suggestions below.

s/until/before

Maybe slightly better as:

 * The above should be sent to the mailing list at least 2 weeks before -rc2.

Maybe instead of "Big bug fixes" we could use "Critical and minor bug fixes only"
