you can't. the marketplace is for plugins. a 'portal' has content, context, users, etc. those things are not published in the marketplace.

At the moment the only way to do it is to make a plugin which for example will behave like a portlet, with the button 'Install'.
But then on 'Install' click this portlet would have to do all the installation of your custom portal automatically.

We have similar challenges for installation of Liferay-based ready-to-go business components, such as various HR Modules (eRecruitment, Employee Performance Review portals), Online Customer Support/Tickets, etc which are represented as portal instances with own hierarchy of roles, pages, custom portlet installations, etc. (Using in-built LAR import/export facility proved to be useless for such purpose even in EE environment).

You cannot publish complex business modules on Marketplace, however creating a custom auto-installation portlet might address this requirement.

Yep, Victor knows his stuff, but even then I think he'll tell you he doesn't try to load a portal, just relevant data for the modules he and his team have created.
