Proposed schedule for JavaFX 14

This is a final reminder that JavaFX 14 enters rampdown phase one (RDP1) 
on January 9, 2020 at 23:59 Pacific time.

Any change integrated to the default 'master' branch after that will be 
for JavaFX 15. I will fork a new 'jfx14' stabilization branch early 
Friday morning (Pacific time). As with previous releases, P1-P3 bug 
fixes, and test or documentation fixes of any priority can still get 
into JavaFX 14 during RDP1. I'll send out more details Friday morning.
