Forum .LRN Q&A: Response to Proposal - New Portlets package and standard (non-dotLRN dependent) package portlets move to OpenACS

Is there a good technical reason for keeping portlets unbundled from their base packages?

No, I don't think there is any reason. IIRC, that was the plan when myself and Kapil were going to work on a new portals package (Sep. 2001). Of course we didn't think in portlets terms at the time but the idea was the same.
