SmartGit currently creates a `.smartgit/` folder in the user's home directory on Linux. Most programs don't create a folder in the user's Home directory anymore and instead use the Freedesktop `$XDG` standard found here: http://standards.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/basedir-spec-latest.html.
Using this standard:
- `$XDG_CONFIG_HOME` – says "configuration files" go to `$HOME/.config/`
- `$XDG_DATA_HOME` – says "data files" go to `$HOME/.local/share/`
- `$XDG_CACHE_HOME` – says "temporal/non-essential files" go to `$HOME/.cache/`
This is just a request to consider using this standard. It makes a lot of sense; it is easy for the user to understand, makes it easier to backup/locate/restore/manage/clear user's data, and creates less clutter in the user's home directory.
Thanks in advance...and thanks so much for everyone's hard work on this program – it's amazing!
