I see lots of references to this env variable. It appears that packages being installed that need this value will default to $HOME/.config if the variable isn’t set.

Should I set this variable? If so, where should I do it to have maximum effect on startup?

If not, why do we even refer to XDG_CONFIG_HOME?

I don’t have it set on any of my installs.

Perhaps to give you the ability to override the default if you need to?
