This is a follow-up to the "heads-up" [0] email I sent before the New Year.

As has been previously announced [1][2], Oracle will no longer 
contribute to the JDK 8 Updates Project after the January 2019 quarterly 
CPU release of JDK 8u202. Since JavaFX for JDK 8 is delivered as a part 
of the JDK, Oracle will also no longer contribute to the OpenJFX 8u-dev 
code line (8u-dev/rt repo) after JDK 8u202 ships.

This means that Oracle is stepping down as the maintainer of the 
openjfx/8u-dev code line after January. As with the JDK 8 Updates 
Project, a suitable party might step forward to maintain the 8u-dev code 
line in the OpenJFX Project once the final Oracle-led JDK 8 Update 
release has been published. If such a party is nominated, we will 
discuss how to best enable such a transition on this Project's mailing list.
