So, what i really want to happen immediately (ideally this week) is to
decide on a format for the directory renaming configuration, because I
want to get that into the next stable flatpak release.
To expedite this I just made up some shit and made a flatpak PR for
generating that format: https://github.com/flatpak/flatpak/pull/2635
As an example, this generates on my system:
$ ./flatpak run --command=sh org.gnome.gedit
[📦 org.gnome.gedit flatpak]$ cat /run/host/font-dirs.xml
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
Is this format acceptable? Its mostly about naming the nodes and the
attributes, so its basically trivial. If you want i can rename things
or change orders, but I'd really just like an Ack on something.
