I have a portlet that is multifunctional and I change a Portlet Preference on it to fit my needs.
What is the best practice in cloning it:
Use the XML Import script to literally clone and change the parameter and place on page?
Create a new instance in the portlet.xml and refer to it when using the XML Import script?
I do move the portlets up in the testing environments so its nice to have a reference in the portlet.xml, but the XML Import script is pretty easy going also...
Just wanted to get some outside opinions.
