Hello, 
I read the FAQ entry "How can include all org files in a directory in my 
agenda?" and I'd like to merge both examples from the answer for my 
agenda-files.

To include all org files in a directory I would use 
(setq org-agenda-files '("~/org/")).

I have a special projects directory with the format 
~/projects/<projectname>/project.org for that I would use

(setq org-agenda-files (file-expand-wildcards 
~"/projects/*/project.org"))


I tried to define a single org-agenda-files with both, unfortunately I 
don't know a lot of elisp so my tries like using list() all failed. For 
the first directory I guess I could also use file-expand-widlcards with 
*.org, but wasn't succesful in merging two file-expand-wildcards either.


On a simillar note I'd like to pitch in another questions. If someone is 
able to help me, then my agenda view combined would have 30 to 50 files, 
previously I never wondered why all the files end up opened in emacs 
buffers. But now if I combined them all each time I view the agenda I 
will be loading all the files. Any way to avoid opening 30 new buffers? 
Thank you.

I'm not sure this is the best way to do it, but this works.

(setq org-agenda-files (append
                        '("~/.life-in-plain-text/")
                        (file-expand-wildcards
                         "/tmp/projects/*/projects.org")))

AFAIK, there's no way out. Agenda needs all those buffers to be open, to work.
Look at this thread.

This is more like it, I think.

(setq org-agenda-files
      (cons "~/org/"
            (file-expand-wildcards "~/projects/*/projects.org")))

Great, thanks very much.

Guess I'll need an alias to kill them all quickly when needed. Thanks.

Hitting `x' in the agenda does it.

Just found that in the thread you linked. I've been killing the agenda.
