Follow-up Comment #5, patch #4387 (project freeciv): I'm getting quite undecided about this, so patch probably waits a bit.
- You're right we don't want to move file to one place now, and another place later, with backward compatibility code then searching all the places it has ever been. We want the file to go directly to correct place. - As for partially supporting XDG that sounds like rather confusing situation. After seeing all our other files in .freeciv user would expect also client settings to be there, and not in XDG directory. And the other way around, user who sees our files in XDG directories would expect all our files to comply. But slowly moving files to be more and more XDG compliant is probably still the best way to go forward with XDG compliance if we target it. - I wanted all the files in one directory, XDG defines separate directories for different kinds of files. Still, system where I want files to place other than under home dir, has to do it for all similar files, so XDG would point to sensible place. No need to configure freeciv separately. - What this means for our Windows port? We have already had hard time making sensible choices what is considered user home dir etc. Playing with env variables is not very Windows. _______________________________________________________ Reply to this item at: <http://gna.org/patch/?4387> _______________________________________________ Message sent via/by Gna! http://gna.org/ _______________________________________________ Freeciv-dev mailing list Freecivfirstname.lastname@example.org https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/freeciv-dev
