Based on the GnuPT Portable package, the GnuPT.de site's version appears to have a launcher that cleans up the registry junk, although I don't know how thorough it is.JohnTHaller wrote:Any portable Thunderbird app that doesn't have a launcher stay in the background will leave your account name (which may be your email address) in HCKU. Both Firefox and Thunderbird will leave multiple traces in APPDATA and HKCU as well.
Based on a (probably) bad reading of the MPL and what happened with the IceCat project (http://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/), it appears to be legal to distribute Mozilla Thunderbird's code as your own, but you can't call it that and you can't use the copyrighted components (including graphics) without permission and you must distribute the code. These groups are obviously not doing that, but I couldn't find anything on the net about Mozilla going after them for license infringement. Still, if there's a problem with the software in a version Mozilla didn't authorize, the community and developers who really do maintain the code are not likely to care or help if its not their version. This is part of what keeps projects with open code in one place unless they become dormant / unmaintained.JohnTHaller wrote:Keep in mind that PortableApps.com has received permission from Mozilla for the packages (including repacking the app, the launcher structure, naming and graphics), making them legitimate, legal apps for distribution. I am unaware of any other group with such permission. Any group repackaging Mozilla apps portably without express permission would be running afoul of the Mozilla trademark guidelines and distributing an illegal app.
