hehe that's cool... Now that the code is open more people can help. I sure 
hope I can find some time soon to get working on the project as I have been 
involved with Jetspeed in my previous company but it didn't fit the bill 
for my current one, at least Jetspeed 1 didn't. I hope that if Jetspeed 2 
can be integrated in my current project then I will be able to contribute 
more time, and therefore more code... But talk is cheap, only actions will 
tell what I will do :)

Anyway I could help on the caching since I have done some work on it for my 
project. The multi-threaded aggregation is another problem, and it seems 
more problematic as full copies of HttpServletRequest and 
HttpServletResponse would be needed, and I'm not sure how well the 
RequestDispatcher handles multiple threads dispatching (does this work with 
Tomcat ? How portable is it ?).

One quick question while I'm at it : I am mostly interested in Jetspeed 2's 
backend services (basically I would use my own aggregation system). What's 
the best way to integrate with an alternate aggregator ? Valves ? Basically 
the flow I'm looking at is this : myServlet -> myAggregator -> Jetspeed 2 
Portlet dispatch. Any suggestions ?

No problem for patches. I ask people for patches first in my project too so 
it's cool starting there. I actually think the Apache contribution process 
is a reasonable one so I'm willing to start low :)

But in order to start I do need a compiling Jetspeed 2.. I must say you've 
added pressure on IBM to commit Pluto now by releasing the source code to 
Jetspeed 2. I think it's great that IBM is contributing their code, and I 
fully understand that they have issues to resolve both legal and quality-wise.
