my latest change to QSP is in  where I fixed a wrong path assignment and also wanted to make
sure that the user can truly override the OSX standard settings for Generic(Data|Config)Location
using the CI system’s XDG_*_DIRS env vars.
Jeremy mentioning stg like MAC_DATA_DIR isn’t an option here (yet), as we want to keep this for
now in line with Ben’s python CI scripts.
Also note, that there is an xdg-utils port on MacPorts:
$ port info xdg-utils
xdg-utils @1.0.2_1 (sysutils)
Description: Xdg-utils is a set of command line tools that assist applications with a
variety of desktop integration tasks.
Build Dependencies: xmlto
Platforms: darwin, freebsd, linux
Maintainers: afb at macports.org, openmaintainer at macports.org
$ port contents xdg-utils
Port xdg-utils contains:
and one could investigate its usefulness further, as René already suggested.
If it - independent on the above - turns out that the XDG* vars aren’t the way to go - as David
Faure already underlined in summer - we eventually would have to come up with new
OSX-CI-specific vars, which then require changes in the python CI scripts themselves. Stg like
MAC_(DATA|CONFIG)_DIRS or whatever could be introduced easily, based on the current QSP code.
