I would love to see a port running on UDOO. One of the things the embedded team is planning to talk about at JavaOne is porting, but I don't see why we have to wait. It would be great to have a porting guide on so that the community can port to different platforms. There are a *lot* of different OS / board combinations out there and we can't target them all (also we can't really release on one with the Oracle stamp of approval until we've done proper QA, and switching boards mid-release would cause yet more release date slippage, and adding new boards isn't cheap from a resourcing perspective).

But we would definitely accept patches if members in the community want to start a porting project, and we can get some wiki pages put up for you.

Incidentally, speaking of the Wiki, you only have to be an Author in OpenJFX in order to have access to the wiki -- so if you (or somebody else) takes this on it should be relatively easy to get you Authorship and access to the wiki so you don't have to wait for us for everything.
