Subject: Bug: org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift shifts CREATED property
Date: Tue, 4 Oct 2011 17:32:26 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <2011-10-04T17-27-01@devnull.Karl-Voit.at> (raw)


When an entry got processed by org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift,
its :CREATED: property gets shifted too:

* <2011-10-04 Tue> test
SCHEDULED: <2011-10-05 Wed>
:CREATED: <2011-10-04 Tue 17:27>
* <2011-10-11 Tue> test
SCHEDULED: <2011-10-12 Wed>
:CREATED: <2011-10-11 Tue 17:27>

Although this *might* be on purpose, I strongly argue to stop this behaviour
because of:

* the entry is not really created in the future. It is created
  either at the original :CREATED: timestamp _or_ it is created at the
  timestamp when org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift is executed.

* the user gets heavily irritated when the generated entries keep
  popping up on future days.

I suggest that at least for :CREATED: properties, the time stamp
does not get changed by org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift.
