Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (TOMAHAWK-464) Make Tomahawk work in portals
Date Tue, 29 Aug 2006 09:51:57 GMT
I am willing to do any help to support porlets in myfaces.

also can some body please, put an article on wiki telling us (newly joined
developers) where to get latest sources which we should work on? (I am
confused which trunk is latest sources)
