Some questions about participating in development

Hello everyone, since I recently spammed 
with bug reports :-), I decided it's time to take the next step and 
contribute patches.

With the help of I was 
able to checkout & build the rt module and execute gradle test, which 
BTW reported:
Exception in thread "JavaFX Application Thread" Exception in thread 
"JavaFX Application Thread"
javafx.scene.web.JavaScriptBridgeTest > testBridgeBadOverloading FAILED
     java.lang.AssertionError: caught unexpected exception: 
netscape.javascript.JSException: TypeError: 'undefined' is not a 
function (evaluating 'sb['append)int)'](123)')

All other tests (loads of them, very nice!) have executed successfully.

I have also successfully executed gradle zips.

Now I wanted to start using an IDE. Under there are 
gradle tasks under section "IDE tasks" for IDEA and Netbeans project 
creation. These tasks are missing from my output of gradle tasks. Is 
there anything I forgot to install? Any unseen dependencies? What is the 
recommended / most used IDE of JavaFX developers?

Also how do I submit patches? I already have signed (but still need to 
send ...) the OCA. There is no way (for me) to attach anything in JIRA. 
Should I send patches to this list?

Best regards,
Robert Lichtenberger
