Hello,

I have a few different things going into my LOGBOOKs (i.e. TODO state
changes, notes from ~org-add-note~, and =CLOCK= entries from
~org-clock-in~ and ~org-clock-out~).

These entries are /prepended/ to the LOGBOOK, which results in a
/descending/ chronological order.  I would like to know if it is
possible to configure org to /append/ them to the LOGBOOK instead, which
would result in an /ascending/ chronological order.

Here is an example of the current behavior:

#+BEGIN_SRC org
  ,* DONE A very important task
    :LOGBOOK:
    - State "DONE"       from "TODO"       [2018-04-05 Thu 14:20]
    - Note taken on [2018-04-05 Thu 14:10] \\
      Still working away at this task.
    - Note taken on [2018-04-05 Thu 14:00] \\
      Working away at this task.
    CLOCK: [2018-04-05 Thu 13:50]--[2018-04-05 Thu 14:20] =>  0:30
    - State "TODO"       from              [2018-04-05 Thu 13:50]
    :END:
#+END_SRC

And here is that same example, but with the LOGBOOK entries in ascending
chronological order (i.e. the behavior I'm after):

#+BEGIN_SRC org
  ,* DONE A very important task
    :LOGBOOK:
    - State "TODO"       from              [2018-04-05 Thu 13:50]
    CLOCK: [2018-04-05 Thu 13:50]--[2018-04-05 Thu 14:20] =>  0:30
    - Note taken on [2018-04-05 Thu 14:00] \\
      This is a note.
    - Note taken on [2018-04-05 Thu 14:10] \\
      This is another note, recorded later.
    - State "DONE"       from "TODO"       [2018-04-05 Thu 14:20]
    :END:
#+END_SRC

I have looked for such a setting in org.el and on the interwebs, but
have yet to find one.  Thanks for any help you can provide.

Probably org-log-states-order-reversed?

That's it!  I guess I glossed over that option originally.  Thank you!
