More community participation in JavaFX

Hi Kevin,

I'm more than happy to keep the community JavaFX build server at running and host JDK 8/9/10/n + FX builds there.

At the moment it's mostly used by the Raspberry Pi community to grab
JavaFX overlays for JDK8 on ARM.

I can also build and host OSX and Windows builds there once the build
instructions are updated.

Lastly I'd also be interested in profiling and contributing performance
enhancements to the FX Java source code based on JIT analysis. IMO it
would be useful if the OpenJFX team would make a statement on what kind of
contributions fit with their overall vision (e.g. increasing performance
vs bug fixing desktop widgets).

We are looking to grow the community of contributors to the OpenJFX
project, especially serious contributors who will stick around long
enough to become reviewers, to help us keep the platform vibrant. To
this end we are looking at ways to encourage more participation and make
it easier for interested folks to contribute.
