Automatic offline updating via folder

Hi,

As the subject line says, is this possible?

* Install PortableApps (PA) platform on an offline workstation
* Manually install via platform the PA versions of required applications
* Sometime in the future, periodically, on another online PC, download the updated versions of the installed PA applications and place them in a single folder
* Copy that folder to the offline workstation
* Once the PA platform starts up, it looks into that folder automatically, sees there are updated versions of the installed PA applications, and then proceeds with the platform and/or application updates automatically after a user prompt

What say you all?

Question of Need

As our most popular apps are internet-connected, I'm not sure how much need there is for this feature. If it's just a couple apps like LibreOffice or GIMP, those can be manually downloaded and updated as needed.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

PA is not Open Source, right?

Yeah, I get you. It is a matter of allocation of development resources depending on requirements. If PA is open source, I might be tempted to implement it.
