PLEASE READ: JDK10 RDP1 process for JavaFX

As you should have seen from the message I forwarded from Mark Reinhold, 
the JDK 10 RDP1 (proposed) rules have been posted.

During RDP1 there is no additional approval needed, beyond the usual 
code review, to push the following types of fixes:

* P1-P3 bugs [1]

* P1-P5 test and javadoc bugs (must have noreg-self or noreg-doc label)

Note that RFEs are no longer allowed in JDK 10 [2]

Most fixes will go into jfx-dev/rt for 11, but for those fixes that meet 
the above criteria, they can go directly in 10-dev/rt. As such, 
openjfx/10-dev/rt has been reopened for FX fixes for JDK 10. Please ask 
if you have any questions.

If you want to get a bug fix into JDK 10, it is your responsibility to 
push it there. I will sync from 10-dev --> jfx-dev periodically (roughly 
once a week, but possibly more often). Alternatively, you can push it to 
both places if you want the fix into jfx-dev sooner (or you can push to 
jfx-dev first and then later backport it to 10-dev).

[1] Especially for P3 bugs, make sure it is a safe fix and that the 
priority is correct, and not "I want to get this in so I'll call it a P3"

[2] Without prior approval from the JDK project lead, and such approval 
is not expected to be given
