Will there be update of openjfx-8u?

If someone wants to create a new project and fork the openjfx/8u-dev/rt 
repo there, that would be fine...as long as everyone understand that it 
is a fork of an unmaintained code base.

Since openjfx/8u is not being maintained, neither the 
javafxports/openjdk-jfx repo nor the new (for project Skara) openjdk 
project on GitHub would be suitable.
