Subject [Contribution] Portlet Customizer
Date Sun, 23 Feb 2003 23:59:19 GMT
I have developed a portlet customizer that I would like to contribute to
Jetspeed.  I have attached a file with the necessary patches to integrate
the portlet customizer as well as the new templates and code that provide
the functionality.

Please feel free to make comments and/or suggestions.

Please note:  This customizer requires the RemoveMediaTypePatch file to be
applied.  Without it, I believe a casting exception will occur.
