I've open sourced the generic HTML widget and the generic XPages widget as part of the project XPages for Connections.

The main purpose of these widgets is to allow community moderators to extend communities without having to deploy new iWidgets for every extension. Having to deploy new widgets is not easy in some IBM Connections deployments since the community moderators are typically not the administrators with rights to run wsadmin commands and such. With the new generic iWidgets only the generic widgets have to be deployed once. After this community moderators can simply add one or multiple instances of these widgets to their communities to embed XPages or HTML.

Additionally I have deployed the widgets to the image that OpenNTF developers can use to build XPages/Connections integration samples as part of the current OpenNTF development contest.
