Docs hosting for Java 11?

Hosting the FX 8 docs somewhere else wouldn't be useful. I presume you 
are asking whether the FX 11 docs could be hosted somewhere?

We currently host the EA docs along with EA builds of OpenJFX 11 [1]. 
That will disappear at some point, although we will provide a link to 
the Project Download page [2], which in turn has a pointer to Gluon's 
JavaFX page [3]. That's where developers will go to get builds of JavaFX 
going forward. Gluon had been talking about hosting the docs somewhere 
(maybe on GitHub(, so perhaps Johan can comment.
