I would start by considering it as two top level groups 1. Indentation behaviour with electric-indent enabled and org-adapt-indent set to t (the current defaults) 2. Indentation behaviour with electric-indent disabled as suggested in the org NEWS file. 3. Indentation behaviour with different values for org-adaptive-indentation. Then we have the different values which org-adapt-indentation can be set to that will 'tweak' the way adaptive indentation works in different contexts. It is my guess that the majority of people can in fact have the behaviour they want either by turning of electric indent mode or by setting org-adaptive-indentation to one of the supported values. I would encourage anyone who is not happy with the default to look at the different supported values for org-adaptive-indentation to see if the tweaking it provides might make org indentation work closer to what they like (as opposed to turning all automatic indentation off). There are probably a few edge cases, but to identify those, we need to first eliminate all the cases which can be 'resolved' with existing configuration options. Tim -- Tim Cross
