Date: Wed, 30 Mar 2022 09:13:29 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <DB9PR06MB775329CB2E49D6A8F50C443DC61F9@DB9PR06MB7753.eurprd06.prod.outlook.com> (raw)

Actually, this only happens with SCHEDULED timestamps, so it might be
considered org-mode's fault since the handling of normal and SCHEDULED
timestamps is not always consistent.

The reason it is different is that `org-agenda-get-timestamps' looks for
timestamps in the org buffer using a regular expression that already
matches only the expected date. `org-agenda-get-scheduled' can't do
that, so it uses a regular expression that matches any timestamp,
converts the timestamp to an absolute date using
`org-agenda--timestamp-to-absolute', and compares with the current
agenda date.

`org-agenda-get-timestamps' also has to do something similar for
repeated tasks. However, the function used to get the absolute date is
different for those timestamps. The function for scheduled timestamps
boils down to

  (time-to-days (encode-time (org-parse-time-string timestamp)))

but for repeating timestamps, it boils down to

  (calendar-absolute-from-gregorian (org-date-to-gregorian timestamp))

For the timestamp "<2022-03-30 mié 23:00>", the second form returns
738244 in my machine, which corresponds to (org-today) at 30/03/2022,
but the second returns 738245. Thus, repeated timestamps still work, but
scheduled timestamps don't.

Is there a reason why two different ways to obtain those dates are used?

For completion, I have also checked deadline timestamps, and they suffer
from the same problem as scheduled timestamps. A deadline for today at
23:00 will appear in the agenda as it would a deadline for tomorrow at
22:59, that is, with a warning that it is due in one day, and not as a
deadline for today at 22:59 would appear.
