Subject: [BUG] (org-agenda-files) after restrict agenda to a file [9.5.2 (9.5.2-gfbff08 @ /home/ignacio/.emacs.d/elpa/org-9.5.2/)]
Date: Wed, 20 Apr 2022 09:33:21 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <PAXPR06MB7760F3A02D140E7DE2BAAEC6C6F59@PAXPR06MB7760.eurprd06.prod.outlook.com> (raw)


After restricting the agenda to a file for a single agenda command, with
'C-c a < a', and exiting the agenda with 'x', (org-agenda-files) still
returns that file instead of the original list of agenda files. This can
be easily solved using the UNRESTRICTED optional argument in
`org-agenda-files', but I wonder if this behavior is correct.

The docstring of `org-agenda-files' says

  "Optional UNRESTRICTED means return the full list even if a
  restriction is currently in place."

But as I understand it, the restriction is no longer in place, since it
was only for the duration of the agenda command, as the Org Mode Manual

  "If you would like to focus the agenda temporarily on a file not in
  this list, or on just one file in the list, or even on only a subtree
  in a file, then this can be done in different ways.  For a single
  agenda command, you may press ‘<’ once or several times in the
  dispatcher. To restrict the agenda scope for an extended period ..."

This is probably a minor issue, but since it was the cause of a bug in
my config that took me a while to debug, I'm reporting it in case you
think that something should be done about it. In case you are curious
about my use case, I was just doing something like

  (eval-after-load 'a-package
    '(setq org-agenda-files (append (org-agenda-files) (...)))
