Blueprints is only shown in the Involvement portlet if the project owner
enabled it. I think removing it from the portlet does not help the
project owner. The owners complain that users are visiting the
blueprints and answer tabs even though the owner decided not to use
them. The root pages answers and blueprints are always active. We could
change them to behave as the bug root now does.
