Basically I don't think the portlet, while being a good example of a  
CMIS client, is relevant to Chemistry in particular, as it stands. At  
the moment, it only uses a handful of constant definitions from  
Chemistry and uses Abdera for all of its protocol support, which  
doesn't seem to be the most likely direction Chemistry is going. So,  
if we were to contribute the portlet, it would have to be maintained  
to follow closely the development of Chemistry's own client-side code  
and I cannot promise that we will find the time for this. If this does  
not happen, the portlet will soon fall out of line with the rest of  
the code and be more of a liability than an asset.

That said, if you and others feel otherwise, please start a vote to  
have it incuded in Chemistry. If people think it would be useful, we  
would be glad to donate it.

In any case, the portlet is freely available at <

but it will be done ASAP).
