to pick further nits - inside $XDG_DATA_HOME we should not be using
hidden files, so make it $XDG_DATA_HOME/password-store
you can look at what others do, this should be ~/.local/share when
XDG_DATA_HOME is not set. to summarise, this should be the order used:
if none of these exist, the last value should be used as the default
place to initialise a password store so new installations are compliant
with the XDG.
