OpenJFX 11 is in Rampdown Phase Two (RDP2)

One more item of interest to developers who use the 
javafxports/openjdk-jfx GitHub sandbox repo [1] :

I just pushed a new 'jfx-11' branch to GitHub. The 'jfx-11' branch will 
track changesets pushed to the HG openjfx/11-dev/rt repo in the same 
manner that the 'master' branch tracks changesets pushed to the HG 
openjfx/jfx-dev/rt repo. Developers should consider this branch 
"read-only" and not make any pull requests against it (other than 
experimental "WIP" PRs for test purposes).

All PRs should continue to be done against the develop branch.

Let Johan or I know if you have any questions.
