Subject RE: Confused about portlet permissions

>If you don't have View permission, then you shouldn't see it in the portlet

Not according to this condition in CustomizeSetAction.buildPortletList:

            if (JetspeedSecurity.checkPermission((JetspeedUser)
data.getUser(), new PortalResource(entry),
                && (!entry.getType().equals(PortletEntry.TYPE_ABSTRACT))
                && entry.hasMediaType(mediaType)))

Is the above correct or should it check PERMISSION_VIEW?

Customize meaning clicking on the portlet/page customize icon, right?

Yes, that is what I thought. I am interested in implementing this type of
functionality but it seems that customize and info icons are mututally
exclusive. See this code in VelocityPortletControl.buildActionList:

            if ( state.allowCustomize( rundata ) )
                if (! customized )
                    actions.add( new PortletAction("customize") );
                if ( state.allowInfo( rundata ) )
                    actions.add( new PortletAction("info") );

Once I'm clear on all this, I'll create an xdoc. I can get involved with any
related patches as well.
