Zephyr 2.3.0-rc2 tagged

Hi all,

The second release candidate for Zephyr 2.3.0 has now been tagged (v2.3.0-rc2).

The current issue counts are:

- 1 high-priority bug
- 16 medium-priority bugs

The high-priority bug (#23364) has a PR (#25954), but a waiver to release without a fix for this particular issue has been requested, due to the invasiveness of the Pull Request and the risk of merging it this late in the release cycle. A note would be added to the release notes and a subsequent 2.3.1 would be released to address this issue.

During the days left until the release, I would encourage everybody to test thoroughly and file any issues found so that they can be fixed as quickly as possible. Additionally, there are still sections in the release notes that need filling, those can be tracked here:
https://github.com/zephyrproject-rtos/zephyr/issues/25869

The full release log can be found here:

More details about Zephyr releases can found on the pages below:

The final release remains scheduled for June 5th.

Thank you to everybody who contributed to this release so far!
