Description

A portable I2P needed where all files in user designated location. I have talked about this before on zzz's forum. zzz said that work hadn't been done on the installer in a long time. Noting that I let it drop and changed my wrapper.config to be portable. One of the problems with this is that there's a lot of hard coded locations instead of "relative to the installation" locations that you have to go through and edit a lot of them. So if you do change it to portable, per instructions in wrapper.config, it's not really portable. If you move it you have to go through and edit a lot of different location data. It needs to have the folders and files relative to the installation folder for portable use then it can be moved to new drives or usb drives.

I saw zab say,"..I'd like to add work on the gradle build system…"here,

While this is being done would be the best time to start this process as the system is being set up to be built.

The reason for this need is that if you value privacy you need to install somewhere different than the drive you normally boot up on. That way all the files can be on a separate encrypted drive. It could also be removed all together if needed and put on a thumb drive. You can't do that if all logs and files are on the drive you boot up with.

I set priority as blocker because I couldn't think of any other category as it does block you from using it as a portable program.
