Subject [jira] Commented: (JS2-23) User/Security Management Portlets

Michael Lipp commented on JS2-23:

Every time I use the Admin portlets, I think "I've seen better", but ... they work, except
for some caching problems (you can't always use the newly created item) and JS2-337. For this
kind of management tasks, I prefer this left list, right list, shift layout, you know:

,----------------------,         ,---------------------,
| unassigned      |  >>   |  assigned        |
| items                  |  <<   |  items               |
|                             |          |                           |
'----------------------'          '---------------------'

(won't look good with every font, but I hope you know what I mean).

Of course, as we have working portlets for this, this isn't a priority 1 issue for 2.0-Final.
On the other hand side, the administrative portlets are the ones that people will see first
when using the portal. And I know from experienece that these first impressions -- unreasonable
as it may be -- will be very important for the acceptance of the portal. We may have the best
architecture, but if users say "yeah, but I don't like how it looks", it won't be accepted,
no matter how often you state that this is easy to fix (exaggerating a bit, but that's my

Currently there is only one issue assigned to you, David. There are certainly more important,
still unassigned issues for 2.0-FINAL. But if those are out of your scope, and you can do
the new portlets for 2.0-FINAL I'd favour to see new portlets for administration (and it would
at least fix JS2-337 ;-)).
