RFE: make pulseaudio XDG compliant
Last modified: 2013-10-11 23:09:26 EDT
Description of problem:
pulseaudio uses ~/.pulse-cookie ~/.pulse for configuration and runtime
files instead of using XDG compliant directories, e.g. $XDG_CONFIG_HOME
Right now, my ~/.pulse directory has the following files:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use pulseaudio
2. ls -l ~/.pulse
I'd prefer poking upstream to get this implemented (I'm certainly not going to hack fedora's packages downstream to achieve this).
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
It's still happening in Fedora 18 - pulseaudio-2.1-7.fc18.x86_64.
I'm all for reporting this upstream.
implemented in pulseaudio-4.0 (at least)
