Hey,

This is the first time I ever posted to this list - but did search the
archive, and google significantly before posting so I hope this hasn't been
asked yet.

Right now I use org-mode to manage my tasks.  I built scripts to pull from
Redmine (a ticket tracking system), and pull it in.  That's all working, but
there are some notes I really would rather have locally on my disk - like my
own notes and all.

The problem I'm thinking is that I wouldn't mind pulling this information in
my script down to the disk, into muse-mode - so creating my own TOC, and my
own files for each issue (say, [[Issue1000]])  What I'd like to do, though,
is in the org-file, to have [[Issue1000]] in the file (e.g. ** TODO: [[Issue
1000]]) or maybe a subitem, (e.g. *** [[Issue1000]]) and have it link to the
muse mode file itself.

Muse works well indepently and I can do this pretty easy, org-mode
integration for the link in doing this isn't possible yet.  Does anyone know
a good option on how to get this working?  Is there a workflow thing that
may be better for me to do instead?

Thanks,

David

I wished I understood what your problem precisely is, because it sounds
really interesting, but I really don't manage to get it. Could you maybe
reformulate it please ?

Why doesn't the following work for you?

,----
| *** [[file:/path/to/muse/Issue1000][Issue1000]] 
`----

You can type C-u C-c C-l within org for a prompt to link to a file.

Or you can type C-c l in the Muse file to store the link and C-c C-l
<up> in org-mode to insert the link.

The manual has a very clear section on hyperlinks.

That said, is there a compelling reason for you to keep your notes in
muse rather than org-mode? Org-mode was created to handle both
ticket/task management and note taking in the same file. You could
keep all the relevant notes (and any data pairs as properties) under
each issue headline. E.g.

,----
| *** TODO Issue 1000
| 
| Notes and subheadings go here.
`----

Feel free to let me know if I am misunderstanding the nature of the
problem.

Best, 
Matt

Thank you to the both of you for responding so quickly.

Basically the reasoning why I' doing all this is to try and take more
detailed notes on stuff that maybe the end user should not see in the ticket
- which right now I kinda have to do.  I still want to capture this
information, so muse-mode kinda made partial sense for documentation
needs.   The goal again is really to have my own "private notes" in the end.

Matthew hit it right on the head about what I was trying to do - and that's
using the file.  I apologize for my newbieness with org-mode (I admit while
I've used it awhile, I never really scratched much more than the bare
surface of this extension), and yes the following would work perfectly
fine.  The only problem is that a lot of my stuff is automatically generated
in one of the files - so keeping notes in the same file complicate matters a
bit when it comes to my matching those notes in regard to the next entry.

I don't know if I'm being clear about what I'm bringing up, but Matt's post
really helped in explaining how to get by with what I feel I need now - but
I think I'll need to spend some time and reconsider all this.

Thanks,

David

Ok, I think I'm understanding it now. So you have a script that download
the issues list from redmine and convert it to an org-mode list of
entries. Then you want to have a local file dedicated to each issue,
possibly in muse-mode because you like it.

What matt proposed would work, but he is also right about the fact that
keeping everything in a single org file would give good results as well.

Let us know how it turns, bridging BTS and org is very interesting.
