Since I looked the other day at the SCOM docs Microsoft has posted another doc. This is the SDK with samples. Thanks to Pete for pointing that one out.
Also Stefan mentioned about a draft security doc. This has been added to the RC2 doc package but can be downloaded separately. Thanks Stefan. Although it is a bit sneaky for MS to put it in there and not update the date or put it as a separate doc so it is visible.
It is good to have the start of a security doc as I have been trying to work it out. I did find that during install you need to create 4 accounts. And I did not get reporting to run correctly until I made the Data Reader Account a local admin.
So the SCOM downloads are:
