Hi all,
It would be nice if dawn followed the standard xdg 3.0 base directory specification both for config and saved game files etc.

See http://standards.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/basedir-spec-0.8.html for details.

You can look for 0ad, battle of wesnoth, freedroid etc. as examples for implementation as well.
