8u40 rampdown schedule

Hi Kevin,

There is still some synchronisation work for the Android port. I have to
create patches for all the changes I made, but I think it would be a bad
idea to do that in a rush, and to try to push them to 8u40. Instead, I
think we can release 8u40 for Android (it's a non-Oracle release anyhow),
and try to integrate all patches upstream for 8u60.

That means 8u40 for Android will be built from the bitbucket repository,
but I think that is politically the right thing. For 8u60, we probably
still build from the bitbucket repository, but hopefully with 0 code
changes between that repository and OpenJFX.

> Here are the key dates:
> 8u40 ZBB (Zero Bug Bounce) : Monday, Dec 1
> 8u40 M4 milestone build : Monday, Dec 8
> 8u40 RDP2 (rampdown phase 2) : Monday, Dec 15
> 8u-dev open up for post-8u40 changes: Tuesday, Dec 16.
> 8u40 repo fork: Wednesday, Dec 17 (based off the build from Monday)
> All product bugs currently targeted to 8u40 are expected to be addressed,

> After Dec 15, only release-team approved bugs will be pulled into 8u40.
> Generally this is only show-stoppers or other release critical bugs.
