I am not sure I understand this comment.  Some English idiom?

I mean, which email address to recommend as the contact address for
gosmore.  It is lacking from the wiki page and the README file.

I suspect /usr/share/gosmore/gosmore.pak, /var/lib/gosmore/gosmore.pak
and ~/.gosmore/gosmore.pak should be checked, in that order, and when
writing it should try to write to /var/lib/gosmore/gosmore.pak first
and fail over to ~/.gosmore/gosmore.pak if the access is missing.  At
least to me that seem closest to the Linux Software Base spec.

I'll see if I can find time to code such behaviour.

Happy hacking,
