One non-obvious point to keep in mind is that you do need to make sure
that all contributors (to a PR, wiki entry, etc.) have signed the OCA,
or the change can't be integrated back into the OpenJFX upstream.
I don't think that GitHub offers programmatic, conditional access to its
functionality fo contributors, so enforcing that kind of requirement can
be a source of frustration. Not enforcing it, on the other hand, creates
long term frustration as well. 
 The implosion of the TeamFX repo is a good example.
