Request for help and testing

We have in the sources a shell script that updates a user's profile configuration files to be compatible with the recent R14 XDG changes. The script is installed to $TDEDIR/bin/r14-xdg-update.

The script is called once from starttde and thereafter is not run again from starttde. The wcript can be run manually at any time by passing the "force" parameter at the command line.

If you look at the script you will see some "TODO" comments. There probably are other TODO items that I have not considered.

This script does a good job against its original intent but needs further testing. No user in this team uses Trinity in the exact same way. Therefore robust testing and improvements to the script are needed to cover unforseen corner cases.

We need to find bugs and oversights before we move into release candidate status for R14.0.0.

Please remember the script is only for R14 and cannot be tested in with 3.5.13 or Using the script in those releases will break the user's profile. Testing the script can be performed only with R14.

Thanks much!
