Hi OpenJFX committers,

After this coming Monday's FX build, which will go into 8u20-b02, we 
will start ramping down for our M2 milestone build (aka 8u20-b03). This 
particular milestone is important for the embedded platform. As a 
result, you will need to observe the following rules for any commit.

1) Sunday, Feb 16 at 11:00 pm Pacific time:  All planned changes for b02 
should be in (our test build is scheduled to start at 11pm that day). 
The usual rules apply for changesets pushed prior to that time.

2) All changesets that are pushed after 11:00 pm Pacific time on Sunday, 
Feb 16 will need additional scrutiny to go in. In addition to your 
normal reviewer you must get a "+1" from one of the following, even if 
you would normally do a post-commit review:

   Daniel Blaukopf
   Steve Northover
   Kevin Rushforth
   Lisa Selle

3) Monday, Feb 17:  We will do our usual "(In)Sanity Testing" and then 
hand off the bits to release engineering for 8u20-b02.

4) Week of Feb 17 - 14:  Bug fixes can go in subject to the extra 
approval noted above, but please hold off making any risky changes until 
after M2.

5) Sunday, Feb 23 at 11:00 pm Pacific time:  We will do a soft freeze, 
during which time we will be locked except for critical issues 
discovered during testing, for b03 (milestone M2).

6) Monday, Feb 24:  We will do our usual "(In)Sanity Testing", with 
extra emphasis on testing anything that changed after b02, and then hand 
off the bits to release engineering for 8u20-b03.

7) I will send a subsequent announcement as to when the repo is "open 
for normal business".

Thank you.
