By way of update, after thinking about this for a week (and getting some
offline feedback), I no longer propose doing this -- at least not for
the short-mid term. I've retargeted this RFE to tbd_major and lowered
the priority to P4.
Having said that, we don't have any plans to modify SceneBuilder, but
will happily accept contributions.

OK, this still comes a bit as a surprise as the source code has been kept in
the repo and was not just provided as a ZIP file.
I'm currently working on a tool based on the SceneBuilder Kit. I needed to work
on the code a bit and was planning to donate the code back to OpenJFX once
released, as I was under the impression OpenJFX would serve as the master /
upstream-repo for all SceneBuilder forks. I was also under the impression that
OpenJFX at least would make sure the code works with any new JDK / JavaFX
version and hoped it would get support for new controls, if any were added to

I filed the following JBS isuse to remova the SceneBuilder sources from
the OpenJFX repo.
As mentioned in the Description of that issue, the OpenJFX repo contains
the source code for a no-longer-maintained version of the SceneBuilder
tool. Active development on SceneBuilder in the OpenJFX repo was stopped
over three years ago. Since that time, the only changes have been either
jigsaw-related changes to keep it buildable and runnable, or global
changes that happened to touch some of the files in apps/scenebuilder.
A fork of SceneBuilder is maintained by Gluon, so anyone wanting to get
the latest SceneBuilder should go there.
Before I proceed, I wanted to poll the list to see whether anyone has a
concern with this. I don't plan to take any action for at least a week.
