We have created a new jfx-sandbox repo:
This repository serves the same purpose as the jdk-sandbox: It allows
multiple OpenJFX Committers to collaborate on larger shared fixes,
prototypes, or projects. By way of example, it could be used for a macOS
Metal pipeline, a GTK 4 platform, or Wayland.
All OpenJFX Committers have direct push access to the jfx-sandbox repo
(just like the JDK Committers do for jdk-sandbox).
General rules and guidelines:
There are only two hard-and-fast rules that must be observed:
1. Don't push any commits to the master branch and don't open a PR
against master. The master branch is continuously mirrored from the
jfx:master branch and should be considered read-only in jfx-sandbox.
2. Don't push to someone else's branch without talking to them first.
And a couple general guidelines that will make this a more pleasant
place to play:
3. Unless this is intended to be a shared, semi-formal project (e.g.,
metal, gtk4, wayland-x11, wayland-native), please prefix the name of
your branch with either a JBS bug ID or your openjdk username.
4. Don't force push to a branch without getting consensus among the
Let me know if you have any questions.
