gnome-specimen doesn't match FreeDesktop directories specs

Bug Description

I've tried gnome-specimen 0.4 on Ubuntu Hardy beta
and it seems that it doesn't match FreeDesktop directories specs :

The default for $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is $HOME/.config, the default for
$XDG_DATA_HOME is $HOME/.local/share. So all applications should look for
those environment variables and use those default values if the variables
are not set.

I can't find data and configuration files og gnome-specimen in these directories.

This is quite important since it's not possible to easily backup config
& data files if these files are not stored at the right place

I don't really see what the problem is here. Gnome Specimen only stores 2 values in GConf and has no further configurations files at all. Closing this report for now, but feel free to reopen if you can elaborate on why there is a problem.

Changed in gnome-specimen:
assignee: nobody → uws
status: New → Invalid
