Right now, the Flashes and Alerts portlet appears on the Overview page, and once you're signed in, you can add it to other portal pages if you want. So for instance if you spend most your time on the Downloads page or the Troubleshooting page, you could add it to those pages.
The wrestling occurred around whether we needed to make the Flashes and Alerts portlet available by default on other pages so you didn't have to add the portlet yourself. And if so, which other pages? All of them or only some of them? As you might expect, there were various opinions about this, so why not ask for a few more.
What do you think? Should this information appear once by default or would you want it repeated on every page, or on some pages? You can go to the IBM Support Portal, sign in, and try adding the Flashes and Alerts portlet to some of the other pages. Let us know what makes the most sense to you.
