My boss has directed me to write a few portlets. He wants to provide white pages to our portal users; query and update functions against ldap. I've been looking for an opportunity to contribute to the public community. I downloaded the address book portlet and I've skimmed the LGPL. I have been unable to contact Chris Mills at JBoss so maybe someone here can help me. Questions:
1. Is there a roadmap for this portlet?
2. Should I build on top of the Contact portlet and release it as LGPL? Or should I start from scratch?
3. If I extend the Contact portlet, do I resubmit the final version to the JBoss Portal Swap under my name and Chris Mills?
I really appreciate any help as I attempt my first open source project. Cheers!
I reposted this in the PortalSwap forum so it can be deleted now.
