I am not sure, but maybe I caused the misunderstanding.
My app (code) uses QStandardPaths, but was rejected.
Harbour stated that I should use the XDG- based rules.
So, I thought: what is wrong with QStandardPaths?
Now -thanks to the comments up here- I understand that harbour was 
talking about the .yaml/rpm stuff, not the directory references in the 
app itself.
