When I attempt to archive a DONE item, using 5.02, I get

( this is from the message buffer)
Copied: Subtree with 326 characters
if: Cannot promote to level 0. UNDO to recover if necessary

In the status line, I see
Cannot promote to level 0. UNDO to recover if necessary

Now, the item itself IS copied to my archive file, but it does not contain an
archive time stamp, and the original item is left alone in the original file.

Any ideas?  I haven't changed any config settings since around the last of the
4.xx series of ORG.

Fixed, thanks.

This was a bug related to the fact that the space after stars in
a headline is now required.  There may be more little things
like this, please keep reporting.

Archiving works almost perfectly in 5.03, thanks.

Here's the new problem.

Defined in my .emacs, I have

 '(org-todo-keywords (quote ("TODO" "REQUIREMENTS" "ACCOMPLISH" "VALIDATE"
 "TEST" "|" "CANCEL" "DONE")))

What is happening is that, when I archive an item, it gets moved correctly,
the archive stamp is written correctly, but instead of saying DONE, it says
CANCEL.

Actually, is this a bug?  Or should I just reorder my list to have DONE come
before CANCEL.  I thought that I read somewhere that DONE had to be the last
item in the line, but I don't seem to see that now that I'm trying to find it.

Org-mode simply picks the first state after "|" for this.
You could re-order, or we could allow a string value for
org-archive-mark-done, in order to specify the keyword to be used.

If you don't care about the sequence of DONE and CANCEL, you can just 
reorder.
Since we have the "|" to separate TODO and DONE states, DONE does not 
have to be last.
Only if you do not specify "|", then the last keyword is used as a state
meaning that the item is done.

Thanks, because putting DONE in front of CANCEL works just fine for me.  Now
everything works very well.

Thank you for all your efforts in providing what has to be the best support
for a software project that I have ever encountered.

<huzzah> <huzzah> Long live Carsten!

Fixed, thanks.

Nick, also thanks for so quickly confirming this bug and for
the correct analysis.

Here's a little more information on what goes wrong:

---- foo.org -----

* foo
** bar
** baz
------------------

C-c $ (on the * foo line) then gives:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (wrong-type-argument number-or-marker-p nil)
  org-get-valid-level(0 nil)
  org-archive-subtree(nil)
  call-interactively(org-archive-subtree nil nil)


the suspect line in org-archive.el being:

          ...
	  ;; Paste
	  (org-paste-subtree (org-get-valid-level level (and heading 1)))
          ...

heading was evaluated to "" and then set to nil, so (and heading 1) evaluates
to nil (it probably should evaluate to 0?), which is used in org-get-valid-level
as a number to be added to the level.

Should (and heading 1) become (if heading 1 0)?

I can see this too:

Org-mode version 6.23trans
GNU Emacs 23.0.60.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.12.9) of 2008-07-01 on alphaville.zko.hp.com

Using the latest from git:  when I try to archive a subtree with C-c  
$, I get

org-archive-subtree: Wrong type argument: number-or-marker-p, nil

Archive is going to the default location, in my case Tasks.org_archive  
in the
same directory.  This also failed with a newly created file.

Thanks,
Ed
