Hi all

The new exporter engine has changed the defcustom names but seems to
have kept the names of the defgroups (at least in the case of
taskjuggler). This is good as it allowed me to make some
backward-incompatible changes. On the other hand when I do a M-x
customize-group RET org-export-taskjuggler I get a list of both the old
defcustom vars and the new ones. This is very confusing to the user as
you appear to have the same cutomizable var twice in the group.

Is this a problem with my setup or is this inherent in the new exporter.
If the latter how can we deal with this?

Thanks
Christian

I think I have seen this before.  Those old variables come from the
shadowed older version of Org bundled with Emacs.  Not sure if this can
be avoided.

Can we have some sort of a check while loading Org that picks up these
shadowed variables and "deletes" them?  My lisp foo is too bad to know
if this is even possible.

Hope this helps,

Hi,

yes, this *is* a problem.

I think Achim has been thinking about some incantation for this
(at install time).  Maybe if this can be done after installation,
we could document it somewhere... not really sure.

I didn't want to change defgroup, it would have been confusing 
to have to groups for the same purpose -- with no real clue on
which one was the most recent one.

It would have to be done each time Org is loaded.  Unfortunately Emacs
doesn't provide an interface for removing such definitions, so you'd
have to traverse a number of not-too-well documented data structures to
get rid of them.  I'm still not sure I found all of these nor if there
are adverse effects of doing that.  Eric Frage (IIRC) was testing a
rough version of what I was trying to do, he reported he was seeing
problems that he wanted to investigate further.  Now, with the dust from
all the other changes settling, we might pick up where we left before:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
;;
;; Kill our ancestors
;;

;; clean load-path
(setq load-path
      (delq nil (mapcar
		 (function (lambda (p)
			     (unless (string-match "lisp/org$" p)
			       p))
			   load-path)))
;; remove property list to defeat cus-load and remove autoloads
(mapatoms (function  (lambda (s)
		       (let ((sn (symbol-name s)))
			 (when (string-match "^\\(org\\|ob\\|ox\\)-?" sn)
			   (setplist s nil)
			   (when (autoloadp s)
			     (unintern s)))))))
(add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/org")
(load "org-loaddefs.el" nil nil 'nosuffix)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This assumes it is run before any Org functions have been used and makes
no attempt to check if that's true.  Another unverified assumption is
that nothing has polluted the namespaces that Org uses.


Regards,
Achim.
