Hi.  I am on Gentoo.  I wrote the following Elisp function:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun J-org-icalendar-agenda-no-babel (&optional async)
  "Invoke `org-icalendar-combine-agenda-files' without babel, maybe ASYNC.

Also, make broken Org links just get marked as such in the
output, instead of stopping the export with an error."
  (interactive "P")
  (let (org-export-use-babel
        (org-export-with-broken-links 'mark))
      (org-icalendar-combine-agenda-files async)))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

When I invoke (J-org-icalendar-agenda-no-babel t), the async export
errors out.  I determined that the inferior Emacs process does not see
the let-binding (org-export-with-broken-links 'mark).  Is this intended
behavior?

For now I have worked around this by writing

    (setopt org-export-with-broken-links 'mark)

At the end of the file named by `org-export-async-init-file`.

Regards!

This is because async export code only tries hard to copy buffer-local
variables (`org-export--generate-copy-script'). Global bindings are not
transferred.

I am not sure if transferring global bindings is something we should do.

The existence of `org-export-async-init-file' implies that user may want
to use different settings from the Emacs session. If we start
transferring the full Org-related Emacs state to async process, users
with custom `org-export-async-init-file' might be affected.

On the other hand, your use-case clearly shows that the current behaviour
can be confusing.
So...
Confirmed.

One possible way to fix the confusion could be adding a new
`org-export-async-preserve-global-state' variable. When non-nil, we will
transfer global state in addition to the buffer-locals.
But I would like to hear other opinions first, if there are any.

In the meantime, or *in addition* to other changes, we could ameliorate
the problem with documentation.  Probably mention the potentially
confusing behavior in the Org manual, and maybe also in the docstring of
`org-icalendar-combine-agenda-files' and other functions that invoke
async export.

Regards!

Would you be interested to submit a patch?

Yes, I suppose I can do it!  I will try do do it this weekend, but it
could take longer because, although it will be a simple patch, I am
disorganized.
