OpenJFX status update

I wanted to update you on the progress of the last couple weeks on the 
OpenJFX project:

1. As mentioned last week, we now have EA builds of OpenJFX 11 on [1]. We intend to update this roughly weekly. Currently the 
build numbers match the corresponding JDK build number, but that will 
not necessarily be the case going forward, so don't assume that they are 
in sync.

2. Barring any build or staging issues, this week's OpenJFX 11 EA build 
will include the jmods as mentioned earlier [2] [3]

3. JavaFX has been removed from JDK 11 as of this week. Starting with 
jdk-11+14, early access builds of JDK 11 will not include JavaFX.

4. After jdk-11+14 is posted on, and FX is no longer included 
in JDK 11, we will start using openjfx-11 as the fix version in JBS to 
distinguish it from JDK 11. We still expect to do a release of JavaFX 11 
around the same time as JDK 11, but using a different release number 
will help track the actual content of JavaFX 11 separately from JDK 11.

5. Once this settles down, possibly later this week, I hope to restart 
the discussion about OpenJFX policies, etc. I also hope to be a bit more 
responsive over the coming days / weeks than I have been for the last 
3-4 weeks. Getting the standalone OpenJFX working and removing JavaFX 
from the JDK was quite time consuming as you can probably imagine.

If you have any general comments or questions about any of this, please 
reply to this thread. We may want to split out more detailed discussions 
into their own thread to make it easier to follow.
