Template Type field and Methodolgy Portlets

On 15.2, setting up a new partition for a new group that is joining us on CA PPM.

 

Noticed a field that I hadn't seen before:  Template Type

 

Appears to display a pick list of all active projects marked as template.  When I select one of the available templates and hit 'save,' nothing appears to happen - tasks aren't added to WBS, Roles aren't placed on Team\Staff page - nothing.

 

Also, the description for the lookup behind this field (PMO Project Templates) states:  This lookup displays all project templates and is used to link projects to templates for methodology portlets.

 

What does this Template Type field do?  What is a methodology portlet? 

 

Searched DocOps and Googled - no luck.
