I'm too late for my own deadline, so I have no expectation that the
framework can review this on time time. If you guys have a bit of spare time
I would appreciate it though :)
I want to propose PLIP 242 for Plone 3.3: Move manage-portlets link to site
Both portlet columns feature a "manage portlets" link at the bottom. This
has several problems:
* the location of the link and the fact that each column has its own manage
portlet link leads users to believe that that link will go to a page to
configure that specific column, which is not true.
* Many (if not most)l custom themes style the portlet column and have no
room for the manage portlets-link below the portlets.
* all configuration options are in site or document actions, except for
manage portlets- a needless inconsistency.
Remove the manage portlets-link from the default portlet renderer template
and replace it with a site action.
