not sure this is the place, but forgive me, i looked through the archive
on 'user-init-directory' and didn't find anything about it.
using XEmacs 21.1 from debian.
i'm using package-get to update my packages, and each time, i'm prompted
to update the package list in a subdir of "/.xemacs",
now i don't know how many of you have a .xemacs dir in the root dir but
i suspect not many.
in startup.el, it is set to :
(defconst user-init-directory "/.xemacs/"
"Directory where user-installed packages may go.")
and i would therefore assume that code using this variable would prepend
the missing '~' but not many packages use this variable in elisp, just
where-was-i-db and package-get it seems.
anyways, i can set it for myself, but i think that either it should be a
default to put the '~' or code using it should prepend it ?
after all it is very unlikely to have anything located in "/.xemacs/"
hope this was the right place to ask that?
