Package: thunar
Version: 1.0.2-1+b1
Severity: normal


Thanks for forwarding.

Having a directory in $XDG_TEMPLATES_DIR seems to be
undefined behavior; that value is not in the Base Dir spec, I
found only one mention of it on fd.o, in an email by the author
of the xdg-users-dir tool.  Under these conditions, the behavior
that I requested does not look unreasonable to me :)

I’ve found the documentation for that, but only a passing mention
about using something other than C (I only know Python).

Best regards
