Yes, I'm subscribed.  Well, I use to be the developer but the facts
should still hold true.  PortableApps.com doesn't modify the source
code, but uses a wrapper around the program to achieve "portable-ness".

If PortableApps needs a change to achieve portableness, it should be
submitted to the maintainers of the original program for inclusion in
the upstream(?) source.
