Skara transition: openjdk/jfx GitHub repo is ready to accept pull requests

A few questions and comments:
1. I'm getting double notifications from threads I'm subscribed to - one
from GitHub and one from the bot, including notifications on my own
comments. The Skara bot doesn't need to notify me on threads I'm subscribed
2. Are the hg files like hgignore and hgtags still needed in the GitHub
3. Is there a plan for the bot to be CSR-aware? For example, add to the
checklist the CSR status when applicable?
4. I updated the build instructions page on the Wiki to remove the
Mercurial requirements and update the Git tools and repo address. The page
could use a cleanup for the sections "Before you start" and anything below
and including "Testing with JDK 9 or JDK 10".
5. Not directly Skara related, but I could not find where the rule that
OpenJFX is compatible with JDK N and N-1 is stated. I see that the section
"Contributing to the OpenJFX codebase" in Contributing.md lists JDK 11 as
the minimum, but doesn't it apply to users of the library too?
