Subject: bugs in org-remember-backup-directory
Date: Sat, 25 Apr 2009 15:08:01 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20524da70904251508w523010efj6a07e25f1cbb03fa@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

I noticed the following regarding
org-remember-backup-directory:

  1) auto-saving does not save contents
     - solution: put (auto-save-mode 1) before or after (not
       sure which) the call to org-set-local in the
       following lines in org-remember:

        # 	  (expand-file-name
        # 	   (format-time-string "remember-%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S")
        # 	   org-remember-backup-directory))
        #     (save-buffer)
        #     (org-set-local 'auto-save-visited-file-name t))
        #   (when (save-excursion

  2) save-buffer is called before there are any contents
     - this causes files without useful content to stick
       around in the dir if the buffer is killed or
       something.
     - solution: don't save the buffer; let auto-saving do
       that work.  will this work?
  3) if you have auto-save-file-name-transforms set,
     auto-saving is done according to that variable instead
     of saving in place.
     - solution: is this an emacs bug?  i am not sure.  the
       auto-saving should be done in place, saving in
       org-remember-backup-directory and not saving in the
       place where the transforms variable tells it to save.
       perhaps each user can kludge transforms or perhaps
       emacs needs fixing?  i have reached debugging ability
       limit.

Thanks.
