Then a project is set on hold, the HOLD keyword is added. When reverting the
hold state, projects go back to not having a keyword. In this case, the HOLD
tag remains, because the old trigger definition was missing a case for the empty
keyword. This is now fixed.
In our configuration, projects are headlines without TODO keywords, that are
neither periodic tasks nor dates (dates usually have todo keywords, namely GOTO
or ATTN, but sometimes dates are just for information, and then the keyword is
missing). Additionally, projects are not tagged with NOP.
This listing helps to see the current projects one is working on.
When filtering for tags instead of todo keywords, inheritance kicks in and makes
handling tasks on hold much easier: the relevant headline can be set on hold,
and all subtasks are automatically on hold as well.
If separate things should be done, generate a separate item for it, or leave
some note at the corresponding series element. Periodic tasks are quite rigid
and should not be used for collecting individual subtasks.
The agendas for monthly reviews and notes are gone, I don't use them. My
monthly review does not look at the agenda at all, only at my backlog.
Searching notes is done using Org's search functionality, and it's working very
The „Everything“ agenda has been renamed to „Unsupervised“. The name
„Everything“ is not apt anymore, as this view clusters items that are not
displayed in the main agenda or are stuck. The name „Unsupervised“ is a little
bit better, but may also change in the future.
Add a new view for listing all items that are not periodic and not part of the
personal backlog (i.e., not tagged with SOMEWHEN). This list should help
getting an overview over the current workload of real TODO tasks. Note that
both periodic tasks (tagged with PERIODIC, i.e., series of tasks) and regular
tasks (tagged with REGULAR, i.e., repeating tasks) are excluded from this list.
Descriptions of agenda views have been extended whereever it felt necessary.
The template for simple tasks should be simple, but got more complex in the last
change. This mistake is reverted with this commit, and the usual "t" can now be
used again for simple tasks. The "T" shortcut now provides capture templates
for complex tasks, but since complex tasks are both manifold and rarer, the
capture templates are provided with two-letter shortcuts.
The `db-music' package is supposed to be an abstract interface to music
functionality, and should thus define the main hydra for this. Moreover, the
hydra should not contain „emms“ in it's name, although it's using only EMMS
It's not clear whether EMMS will every be replaced by some other backend, but
it's nicer to have a (more or less) clear separation between user frontend and
The idea of having a hydra to access frequently used features is certainly nice,
but quite hard to achive when one wants to redefine the hydra every time
`db/frequently-used-features' changes. Regrettably, there are not „ephemeral
hydras“ that are created every time one would like to access it. Therefore, the
shortcuts hydra is removed for now, but may come back again when we have found a
better way to handle its dynamic nature.
A curcial step in the conversion, namly the computation of the actual time from
the seconds since the epoch, had been conducted with too little precision. Now
the precision is fixed to a high value throughout the whole computation, and the
tests succeed again.
