Subject: Re: JavaFX + UDOO

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.
