Thanks Martijn,

I have read through the OpenJDK wiki a bit, set up an OpenJFX environment (while I was not able to build inside an Eclipse/IntelliJ/NetBeans IDE yet, the Gradle build is working fine), and also worked on a first contribution for JDK-8088147 to get a start. What is not yet clear to me is how to deliver that contribution. As seems to be limited to users with push access, where to make a patch available for review/consumption? Shall I generate webrev material and attach it to a mail? Also, as only authors seem to be allowed to comment issues in JIRA, how to contribute there (I would like to at least answer questions that were raised on issues I have created via the Webbug interface)?

I have studied computer science at RWTH Aachen University, where I subsequently earned a doctorate, and I currently work for itemis AG in Germany. Being project lead of the Eclipse Graphical Editing Framework (GEF) project, my motivation for contributing here is that GEF heavily relies on JavaFX. My focus is thus OpenJFX. Especially its SWT integration is of growing importance to the Eclipse community, and I will try to help bringing it forward.
