Maintaining a PortableApp on GitHub

I'd like to understand how a PortableApp is maintained in it's GitHub repository.

For example, the LibreCAD PortableApp full application repository is https://github.com/LibreCAD/LibreCAD. It has scripts for release builds that include an NSIS installer. What would be required to generate a release PortableApp?

Publisher vs Portable

That's the repository for the publisher, not for the PortableApps.com package.

We only update applications when official releases are made by publishers, and do not provide support outside this.

PortableApp on GitHub

Original post updated to specifically refer to the release build.

PortableApps seem to be hosted in two ways in GitHub repositories: Full PortableApp within publishers repository or only files unique to specific PortableApp (eg 2wayne repositories). Have repository owners made any information available about how the PortableApps are built from these types of repositories?

PortableApp on GitHub

Thanks for the PM that repositories with only files unique to specific PortableApp are compiled manually offline. The intent is an automated process to add a portable app to an existing GitHub repository.
