Regarding a list of desired patches/work, I have been using the 
'openjfx-candidate' label up to this point (but this isn't something 
anyone else is using, afaik):

On top of this, there is also the unassigned (ui controls) bugs that I 
want to get fixed for JavaFX 8.0:!%3D+New+AND+resolution+%3D+Unresolved+AND+fixVersion+in+%28Lombard%29+AND+component+in+%28Control%29+AND+assignee+is+EMPTY

If anyone can help with these it would be great - just leave a comment 
on the bug claiming a desire to own it. Of course, a signed / accepted 
OCA is required first, but a number of people are starting to get their 
OCAs submitted, which is great.
