The current [release candidate packages](http://repo.ros2.org/status_page/ros_crystal_default.html?q=SYNC) are in the testing repository for ROS 2 Crystal patch 2 (although the linked status page is for AMD64, ARM64 debs are also available). The release and sync will happen on Thursday barring any regressions.

I haven't created pre-release binaries for Windows or Mac due to the time it takes to upload them to GitHub, but if someone commits to testing a binary artifact on either of those platforms and reporting back I'll start a pre-release packaging job for the requested platforms on our CI farm.

In the meantime, rosinstall_generator can be used to create source workspaces of the patch release candidate or you can get a repos file from [this pull request](https://github.com/ros2/ros2/pull/655).
