Time Machine regardless, ~/Library/Logs is for an entirely different
kind of logs than what's being discussed here. All you'll find there
are, generally put, system admin/maintenance activity logs, while
Adium logs are really, as the app makes it clear, "chat transcripts".
I never really liked the deeply nested ~/Library/Application\ Support/
Adium\ 2.0/etc/etc/etc transcripts home path, but then again I also
loath having my ~/Documents directory invaded by stuff I didn't
personally put there.
A part of the excerpts Peter sent to the list said that no user data
should be put under ~/Library, but even Apple clearly violates that by
using ~/Library/Mail since no one is ever going to convince me that my
mails aren't "user data". I am convinced, though, that they aren't
"directly-actionable-by-the-user user data", which is how many here
could describe Adium's chat transcripts, I believe. So on that idea,
wouldn't ~/Library/Adium be an option? ~/Library/Application\ Support/
Adium (that "2.0" seems so yesterday!) will still of course see lots
of uses, most of which (if not all) are absolutely transparent to the
user, but maybe ~/Library/Adium could be considered for the more "user
oriented" data that's currently tucked under the former...?
