ok, can someone/Jonathan/Tom explain me what to do exactly?
I've looked at the google code and it seems I have to create a clone, where I can work on. I assume this is just like a branch.
It seems there are already about 20 clones... Who will merge all this stuff? Or what is the process of getting a common code base? Honestly I doubt we could have THE one control eventually, since the code bases of the three existing calendar controls are too different.
And what is the difference between JFXtras and OpenJFX? Will stuff from JFXtras be taken into OpenJFX, which eventually will be JavaFX 2.x ?

This control could also be an excellent community contribution via OpenJFX. I have been suggesting to all date picker controls developers to move their code to JFXtras, and to work with the other developers on creating a single control that features the best features of all of them.
