I see; the too many ','  in the sentence, confused me.

Before deciding what should be patched and what shouldn't, a default
wallpapers location should be used (which was the whole goal of the
thread I linked above). As you can see it's a jumble, each DE has a
different idea of where wallpapers should go; and it becomes more
confusing when the same issue is re-discussed afresh in a whole new
thread, saying the same things that were said in the old one.... :)
