Hello,

is this possible with org-mode? Given a tree:

* Name
:PROPERTIES:
:ARCHIVE:  ???
:END:
** Archive    :ARCHIVE:
** Some node

Upon archiving "Some node" (or any direct or indirect sub-node of 
Projectname) I want to end it up under "** Archive". The archive 
location should always be relative to the node where the property 
ARCHIVE is set.

The documentation org-archive-location does not suggest that is possible.

Is that possible?

Thanks,
Florian

An alternative idea would be a setting for the ARCHIVE property that 
searches the tree upward until it finds a node with an :ARCHIVE: tag and 
use that as archive location. Maybe indicated by a setting of "::%a".

What do you think?

I could be wrong, but my feeling (in either case) is something like
that would probably require writing a custom archive function.
Luckily, Orgmode allows you to do that.

Ok, I expected that's the way to go. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to 
find how to set a custom archive function. Could you give me a pointer?

You will need to advice org-archive--compute-location
