I added an updated patch, please let me know what needs to be done to get this merged.

After that, I'd like to look at the .nano directory to address the same XDG conformance issues there, too.

It would be good to support XDG basedir spec ( ) for reading the rc file. Having all configuation in one subdirectory makes backups much easier and declutters the home directory. I put together a rough patch adding $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/nanorc or ~/.config/nanorc as an additional location to check for rc files.
