According with FHS (1), the directory /etc/X11 with various configuration files/directories should exist.

This is also covered in one of our pages and particularly in X Window System Components page (2). Please refer to that page and particularly near the bottom of the 'Configuring The X Window System' section of that same page for more info. Keep in mind that the symlinks needs fixing, as it was reported in #2391.

I will leave the ticket for a while, because there is a contradiction with a similar package, that is xterm.

Yeah, this should be handled. We create the /etc/X11 hierarchy for Xorg for this reason. Is there some way to make it more obvious?

Providing a comment to bump a mail message about this ticket.

It is slated for the 6.3 release, nobody has claimed it, and I don't really have a clue what it is about (didn't try hard to figure it out).

Just as the other ticket mentioned, this needs to be closed as wontfix or deferred until after 6.3 (or somebody needs to jump in and do something about it).

This can be closed after fixing #2391
