The XDG base directory specification that have good de facto adoption.
It has been adopted by
- GNOME (see https://live.gnome.org/GnomeGoals/XDGConfigFolders
- KDE (see http://techbase.kde.org/KDE_System_Admi ... _Hierarchy
- XFCE (see http://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-session/advanced
in Files and Environment Variables)
- Ubuntu (see http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/6557/
- many other distributions
- many other upstream apps
