Follow-up Comment #3, task #10934 (project weechat):


This is not planned to change the default value of WEECHAT_HOME, for two

1. XDG/freedesktop.org is related to X-Window, which is not the case for
WeeChat: it runs on many operating systems (even non-free), with or without
graphical environment, and it does not depend on any X-Window lib.

2. such change would be annoying for all existing users, it would break
compatibility, for example on /upgrade (at least it would require manual
actions to copy/move config files before upgrading).

You can change the value when you compile WeeChat, this will not impact other
users (that's why the option exists, to change the value if you don't like the
default one).
