 From my understanding of IBM position, the involvement of Thomas, Ingo, 
Stephan was
professional. They proposed an initial Portlet API, which we discussed 
somewhat and modified
a little mainly to add SAX support and talk about the PAR files (if I 
remember correctly we reached
an agreement near february/march 2001 so this makes it the most 
interesting read in the archives).

They then contributed an implementation of the Portlet API that 
currently sits "portlet_api" branch of
Jetspeed. I'm currently evaluating how to integrate smoothly some (most) 
of the work done in this
branch in the current Jetspeed context.
