[8u-dev announce] Future contributions to openjfx/8u-dev

As has been previously announced [1][2], Oracle will no longer 
contribute to the JDK 8 Updates Project after the January 2019 quarterly 
CPU release of JDK 8u202. Since JavaFX for JDK 8 is delivered as a part 
of the JDK, Oracle will also no longer contribute to the OpenJFX 8u-dev 
code line (8u-dev/rt repo) after JDK 8u202 ships.

This means that Oracle will be stepping down as the maintainer of the 
openjfx/8u-dev code line after January, and will call for a new 
maintainer. If a suitable party steps forward to maintain the OpenJFX 8 
Updates code line after the final Oracle-led JDK 8 Update release has 
been published, we will discuss how to best enable such a transition on 
this Project's mailing list.

I wanted to send this before the holidays, although I realize it might 
get lost in the shuffle, so I will resend it after the first of the 
year, along with a formal call for interested parties who wish to put 
their name forward as a maintainer for the openjfx/8u-dev release.
