Ticket #7399 (new Bug report)
configuration files in linux are not located according to the freedesktop guidelines
|Reported by:||spectral||Owned by:|

Configuration files should be in $HOME/.config/package/ as per the freedesktop guidelines:
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME defines the base directory relative to which user specific configuration files should be stored. If $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is either not set or empty, a default equal to $HOME/.config should be used.
See here: http://standards.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/basedir-spec-latest.html for more details.
I think this is a fairly easy task to do, and if everybody followed these guidelines we could maybe finally get rid of all these .dirs in the home directory.
