Hi Pete,

Web portal can be a somewhat ambiguous term.

To some, it means Yahoo and similar sites that provide a single point of
entry to lots of online services. (Or corporate or government sites that
serve similar purpose).

To others, it means content management apps like Drupal or Mambo.

Yet again, especially in the Java enterprisey world it can mean a product
that is a combination content manager and application framework that lets
you use shared authentication and access control for web apps that plug into
the portal.

If you are looking for content managers, Plone is the granddaddy of python
content managers. www.plone.org

If you are looking for frameworks to build a portal of your own, try zope at
zope.org, django at www.djangoproject.com or turbogears, at turbogears.org.
There are also some up and coming content managers being built on django or
tg, you can find links off of those sites.

Good luck.
