From: Daniel Mendler <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Cc: Stefan Monnier <email@example.com> Subject: org-mode-map binds [tab] Date: Sun, 27 Jun 2021 17:34:46 +0200 [thread overview] Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> (raw) In-Reply-To: <email@example.com> `org-mode-map` binds `[tab]` which is unnecessary and harmful, since it takes precendence over bindings of TAB even in keymaps with higher precedence. Emacs : GNU Emacs 27.1 (build 1, x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.24.5, cairo version 1.16.0) of 2021-02-09, modified by Debian Package: Org mode version 9.4.6 (9.4.6-gab9f2a @ /home/user/.config/emacs/elpa/org-9.4.6/) ---- I've observed this problem with my GNU ELPA package Corfu, which installs a keymap with higher precedence than org-mode. In order to override Org, it also has to bind [tab], which is undesired.
