#7339 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Cleanup of folder hierarchy

Description

Just for aesthetical pleasure, I think it would look tidier if
the docs (ChangeLog, COPYING, NEWS, TODO and
README) went into a separate 'docs' folder.

Plus, the OS-specific stuff such as the icns, plist, ico and
xpm files could possibly also use a separate folder.

That way, the scummvm folder would be much neater...
but of course it's just a minor annoyance... :o)

ChangeLog, COPYING, NEWS, TODO and README are on the top
level by tradition and in virtually every single Unix software out
there. Esp. README, COPYING and NEWS really really should be
right next to the app because they are essential.

In any case, you are apparently complaining about a pre-release
snapshot of ScummVM; moreover, about a source tarball, not a
(release) binary. C'mon! If you are using a source snapshot, you
should be very easily able to deal with a handful of files. You'll
never see the plist file in a binary release, for example.
