Develop a tool which would allow users to migrate from third-party CMS and portal applications to allow relatively smooth importation to specific Liferay portlets. While the scope of this improvement/feature could be potentially large as there are many applications out there, development of such a tool would provide a smooth transition to Liferay. A specific example for this request would be to assist in extracting specific sets of news articles from Fatwire to Liferay's Blog portlet.
This would be helpful for users looking to make a transition from existing portal/CMS software to Liferay with relative ease.
