How do you add an Announcements web part to a collaboration portal home page I cannot see it listed as oeof the available web parts

Which leads to the more general question of what other restrictions are there with regard to adding web parts to sites based on templates

You add the Announcement WebPart as the feature, package it as the SharePoint the Solution and deploy it to your portal. Then Turn On the Announcement WebPart Feature at the Site-Collection. This should bring the announcement webpart to the collaboration portal

This works

Browse to collaboration portal

Site Actions > Site Settings > Modify All Site Settings

Site Administration > Site Libraries and lists

Create new content

Communications > Announcements

Now the new announcements list is on the web site. To add a web part to view the content of the announcements do the following:

Browse to the page you want to add it to (I used the home page of the collaboraiton portal)

Site Actions > Edit Page

From the Page menu click Add Web Parts > Browse

Click Filter in the Add Web Parts pane on the RHS

Choose Lists from the Show drop down

Select the new announcements list web part

Click Add
