    1. I find some of XDG's default dirs, especially ~/.local/share/whatever, to be very annoying. (Almost as annoying as having ~/snap polluting my home dir, but for a different reason.) I shouldn't have to type such long paths or navigate three folders deep in order to access my data files. I therefore make use of the XDG_DATA_HOME environment variable for XDG-style programs, so they will put my files somewhere convenient. However, I don't think Snap can honor that variable, because AppArmor rules require fixed paths. Given 1 & 2, I think ~/.snap/data is a sensible compromise, at least until the underlying components are flexible enough to let the user choose.

    1. Because ISO code lists were not always free and because they change over time, a key idea was to create a permanent, stable registry for all of the subtags valid in a language tag.

      Why was it not free???

    1. The Web Annotation Data Model specification describes a structured model and format to enable annotations to be shared and reused across different hardware and software platforms.

      The publication of this web standard changed everything. I look forward to true testing of interoperable open annotation. The publication of the standard nearly three years ago was a game changer, but the game is still in progress. The future potential is unlimited!
