Online installer

µTorrent Portable is an online installer. This is not.

This is not?

And how to make it an "online installer"?
I really didn't know how can I.

And I dont talk about uTorrent, here.
This is an better software than uTorrent! Point.

How about Opera, TeamViewer, AniFX, Fotografix, Skype, etc.
These ARE NOT OPEN SOURCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not SourceForge

None of these examples are hosted on SourceForge. TeamViewer is hosted on teamviewer.com, and the rest are on downloads.portableapps.com. You may not distribute closed source software on SourceForge. It's against the terms of service.

Concerning online installers, read the documentation on it, which is in the PAF spec.

To mod Cris

@mod Chris:
I have the accept of the owners and I maked it portable.
A lot of portable apps, hosted on portableapps account on sourceforge ARE NOT OPENSOURCE, and that software is IN THE SAME SITUATION.

Anyway, a message for downloaders:

If you can't download it from here, try on the official site: www.bitspirit.cc/en/ because it will be apear portable in some days.

No

You may not host it on SourceForge. With online installers, the part on SourceForge is open source. Our bundled freeware downloads are not on SourceForge. You will need to remove it from SourceForge.

If you get permission to distribute a freeware product, please state that in your original post. (Preferably with an excerpt of the notification of permission as well.)

Two of your other apps,

Two of your other apps, BitShare.com Desktop Tool and Multiupload Batch Uploader are hosted on SourceForge but are not Open Source. You may have permission for both of those, and probably for this app as well, but as Chris has stated above you cannot host freeware on SourceForge as it is against their terms of service.

Whether you get it hosted on the site of the original app or somewhere else, it just can't be on SourceForge.

BitSpirit

Its freeware

Probably "SapioIT" had also permission
or the author of program don´t bother about (yes or not) to portabilize. Certainly He´s not against of it.

I had permission almost a year before.

That maybe right. A simple

That maybe right. A simple note - best but imho not required with a short quote of the answering mail/forum post of the original developer etc. - in the release info would have clarified that.
That still leaves the sourceforge issue.
Both are easy to sort out as can be seen in many other dev tests...

SourceForge.net has a strict

SourceForge.net has a strict policy for only allowing Open Source applications on their servers. Are you sure the SourceForge.net support team acknowledged that BitSpirit is freeware before they gave you permission?

Yes, they accepted... readme, please

Yes, they accepted, BUT I need to reveal the readme file in all folders I have portable apps. Is like you use an SDK. You need the main app to run that code. And that main app (of SDK) can be Private Source.

You can read the readme file from my account.

Permission your only good claim

I don't believe that it's basically compatible with their Terms of Service without explicit written permission from Geeknet.

SourceForge.net Terms and Conditions of Use, section 3, User Content, subsection Code Licenses Granted to Geeknet and Other Users, article Compliance

By submitting Code to SourceForge.net, you certify that your Code is in compliance with the OSI-Approved or compliant license that you designate, and you hereby represent and warrant that you have all rights, licenses and consents necessary to grant Geeknet and other users the rights and licenses granted herein, and under the OSI-Approved or compliant license you designate, without infringement of any third party rights. In addition, the Code that you submit must also be made available in human-readable (i.e., "Source Code") form. Whenever reasonably feasible, you agree that you will make Source Code available on or via SourceForge.net corresponding to Code that you post, submit, display or distribute. You must make Source Code available for all portions of Code that you have modified, enhanced or otherwise created derivative works from (with any such modification or derivative work being a "Change").

Geeknet acknowledges that there may be situations where posting Source Code is not reasonably feasible; examples of such situations are when you are posting Code that: Angel is ancillary to other Code that you have Changed but such Code is only available to you in binary or executable form (such as closed-source device drivers or closed-source software frameworks); (b) is otherwise readily available in Source Code form online as part of an Open Source distribution, and where you notify users that the Source Code for such distribution is available elsewhere on the Internet (and you also provide a link to that location); or (c) Geeknet agrees in writing does not need to be posted in Source Code form.

To take this example, BitSpirit could be considered to be ancillary to BitSpirit Portable, but really it's the other way round. BitSpirit Portable is ancillary to BitSpirit; BitSpirit is the main work, BitSpirit Portable is merely a slight extra bit to make it function in a certain situation. I do not believe that it morally constitutes satisfaction of option (a), though legally it is possible that it might (I think a pack of lawyers would be quite happy to argue about it for a few months if you paid them to do it). Option (b) is obviously not satisfied. Option (c) is what you are claiming; I would like proof of this, indicating that (i) they give permission, and (ii) they understand the situation fully.

Argument from silence?

Are you forming an argument from silence, or do you have explicit permission? If you don't, then I believe you are violating the Terms of Service and should remove the files.

Do you will report me?

And if I don't want to show that to you? What you'll do? You will report me? You're my guest! To report me myself, for you, to see the anything you want to see? What you want to see? Why I don't give to you, my eMail account with his password? Why don't you come at my home and say to me that to do and what to do not?

They contacted me, I explained to them, the situation, they let me to keep that files.
If you want to be sure I don't use any trick with the image of "explicit permission", please, PLEASE, REPORT MY ACCOUNT! YOU ARE MY GUEST!

If you don't report me, please, SHUT UP!

This is not one of my best days...

Strong words

I believe, and I am sure Chris will correct me if I am wrong, He is just trying to help. Sourceforge is a large group, they may not fully understand what it is they are "agreeing" to. The crux of the issue is that the program is now posted here, on PortableApps. So not only does it have to be ok with them it also needs to be ok with the rules set forth here. That is why I initially asked the question about hosting.

BTW not nice to tell a site admin to "Shut up" especially when they are trying to assist.

Well...

I'm sorry! That was not one of my best days. I explained that to him. He re-asked the same thing. The same answer from me. And so on... If he still belive I am not allowed there, why did he just report my account?

Just talking here he will do not see if what I said is true or not. That's what I tried to say!

in short, only open-source

in short, only open-source applications can be distributed on sourceforge, your application included a closed source application thus can not be allowed on sourceforge, the application process on sourceforge I'll admit is lax but the rules are rules, so while you may have permission from bitspirit developers to include the application it would still violate the rules of sourceforge, my suggestion is to use a different method of sharing the application.
Maybe ask the bitspirit team if you could work with them to host it themselves thus making it portable using the portableapps.com method but keeping it legal at the same time. it's just a thought.

Simple solution

There's a simple solution to this: just quote for us the email you sent to sourceforge, and their response. You can take out the email addresses, it's just the content that's needed.
