Ros is correct about needing to be on the Trusted List.  You have several options:

  1. You can write to the profile manager, including the source for your information.  
  2. You could leave a comment on the profile instead - the profile manager will automatically receive notice of your comment.
  3. You can ask to be added to the trusted list.

In this case, the profile manager hasn't been active in several months, so you might not get any response.  After waiting a week or two for a response and not receiving one, you can follow the Unresponsive Profile Manager process.

I contacted the owner, he put me on the Trusted List, and the changes have been made.

Thanks for the help.
