OpenJFX mirror at BitBucket?

Right. If you wanted to revive the unofficial OpenJFX bitbucket mirror 
for your own experiments, that is certainly something you could do 
(subject to the GPLv2 + CLASSPATH license terms).

For those patches to then be incorporated into the openjfx repos on they need to go through the existing openjdk 
mechanism (which requires a signed OCA) as patches / webrevs, just like 
any other openjdk project. We cannot take patches directly from a 
BitBucket repo.
