Hi

Would it be feasible to require that any default applications in
workstation follow the appropriate freedesktop specifications including xdg
base dir in

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Workstation/Guidelines/Applications_and_Launchers

I have been filing a number of RFE's and some of the components including
IcedTea (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=947647) got fixed
recently but mandating it could help adoption more.   This would be a
continuation of

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/XdgConfigDirs

The only major application that doesn't support it yet and is the default
in workstation afaik is Firefox

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=259356

For reference, I have filed the following bug reports before

Tor: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=968163

Eclipse: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1084257

Python bugzilla: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1103540

Thanks!

Rahul
