Excess TorMessenger folder

Description

It is unclear why the folder ~/tor-messenger/Messenger/TorMessenger/Data/Tor exists.

torrc-defaults is read from
~/tor-messenger/Messenger/extensions/tor-launcher@…/TorBrowser/Data/Tor, isn't it?

Similarly, on Mac OS there is a folder at the top level that does not seem to really be used:

Tor Messenger.app/TorMessenger/

Instead, the profile is under:

Tor Messenger.app/Contents/TorMessenger/Data/Browser/

And the Tor files data are under:

Tor Messenger.app/Contents/Resources/extensions/tor-launcher@…/TorBrowser/Data/Tor/

In my ideal world, there would be no directories named "TorBrowser" or "Browser" and all of the data, profile, etc. would be located under Tor Messenger.app/TorMessenger/ (if Tor Launcher needs changes to make this work, let me know).

This is now fixed with the updater patches. We have moved to the Tor Browser directory layout.
