I've got this reply on my ticket, so maybe I didn't explain my
problem well enough.
Does someone have an answer that is easy to understand to pass on
(or better: sign up and deal with it upstream)?

for configuration file (#8682)

Gajim looks in 2 places for plugins:
 - $XDG_DATA_HOME/gajim/plugins
  - GAJIM_INSTALL_PATH/plugins (/usr/share/gajim/plugins for example)

So you can set $XDG_DATA_HOME to something else. Isn't it enough?
