In general one should not assume that any Release or Release Candidate files
available for download until the official announcment has gone out. (It has
happened that a release had to be pulled at the last minute even after
images had gone out to most mirrors, but before the official announcement.)

In this particular case the official announcement for 8.0-RC2 has just been
made so I guess any RC2 files found now are indeed the real deal.
