Hi All,

A few comments about the mirror and JBS:

1. In PRs and issues on GitHub, I strongly suggest that the link to JBS be
included in the top comment. If the JBS issue was created after a
discussion, edit it in.

2. In JBS, I suggest to link to the GitHub mirror via More > Link > Web
Link and in the Link Text use something like "GitHub mirror" (open for

3. In JBS, I suggest a new label will be used for issues which are linked

4. What is Newcomers can confuse it
with javafxports/openjdk-jfx.

5. When the mirror is fully ready and operational, we should advertise on
community pages (like Reddit) to gather up contributors. Please keep a
mental reminder when the time comes.

Thanks to all who are working on this.
