Are JBS' policies flexible enough to welcome the JavaFX community?

Hi Chris,

Looks like a good list, ultimately it depends on the needs of the
OpenJFX community but this seems a great starting point.

The link person (or person*s*) should probably take care of the
triaging, be the ones who collect the bugs and file them upstream,

This is what the downstream OpenJDK bugs maintainer do, and if OpenJFX
gets integrated into OpenJDK (which I hope will happen soon!), we can
see more and more help from the Linux community in that regard. Mac and
Windows communities should offer something similar, a triaging group is
the way to go in my opinion.
