FX 12-dev repo is now forked from mainline

This is now done. To summarize:

- The openjfx/12-dev/rt repo is now open for pushing changesets for FX 
12 that meet the RDP1 criteria as outlined below.

- The openjfx/jfx-dev/rt repo is now available for pushing changesets 
for FX 13.

- I will periodically sync 12-dev --> jfx-dev (meaning that developers 
should push to one or the other, not both)

- The develop branch of the javafxports/openjdk-jfx GitHub sandbox may 
be used for either FX 12 or FX 13 changes
