[Deploying Sakai] [Building Sakai] Grouping tools as rSmart does
branden at uwindsor.ca

We've configured this here at U of W with xsl-portal. The key to
configuring categorization is in the toolOrder.xml.
You can use the <toolCategory> tag to group your tools in categories for
particular site types:
<tool id="sakai.chat" />
<tool id="sakai.rwiki" />
<!-- ... and so on ... -->
As far as features lost using the xsl-portal, I'm not quite sure. We
haven't used the standard portal in production, so hopefully others who
know both quite well can provide some input.
Hope that helps,
