PerfectCarl created IVY-1502:
--------------------------------

             Summary:  Be a nice freedesktop citizen, move the ~/.ivy to the appropriate location

                 Key: IVY-1502
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IVY-1502
             Project: Ivy
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 2.3.0
         Environment: linux
            Reporter: PerfectCarl
            Priority: Minor


According to the XDG specification [1], there is a better way to store the user specific data
of an application by dumping in new hidden folder in ~/.
More information about it can be found [2]

The specification defines places to store the data so that the user profile can be updated
and moved properly while reducing some weird bugs.
Those places would be ~/.local/ivy or ~/.cache/ivy and other (depending on the data stored)
