Description Jonathan Chen 2020-03-27 23:11:39 UTC
The entry for sddm in /usr/ports/UIDs has $HOME=/usr/local/etc/sddm/home.

I believe this is incorrect as sddm uses $HOME to store state instead of configuration; and hier(7) suggests that /usr/local/etc should only have configuration files instead of transient files. sddm  modifies the contents of $HOME whenever someone logs in/out.

I would suggest its $HOME be relocated to /var/sddm.
