Hi guys,

After updating to 3.5 quite few people reported that their
configuration is gone and they have default setup.

The reason for this is that 3.5 now uses XDG spec
~/.config/libreoffice instead of ~/.libreoffice. Simple copy of later
folder to replace the former one solved the issued for everyone.

In my humble opinion I think that this migration should be done
automatically and user should not be bothered by this (even packagers
should not do this as we should mostly NOT touch user homedirs).
