Dear all,

How can I bring up a list of "stuck" projects? Here "stuck" means all of
the following:

  1. No DEADLINE/SCHEDULE
  2. No TODO Keywords
  3. No Tag

Thank you.

Is the documentation on org-stuck-projects not sufficient?  If you've
tried customizing that variable, and can't get it to do what you want,
maybe you can tell us what you've tried and where the problems are?

You need some way to tell what a project is, for example
everything with level 2 that is not DONE.

To indicate that any TODO keyword or any tag will label the
project non-stuck, you currently have to list all TODO keywords
and all TAGS in the variable `org-stuck-projects'.

So right now you'd have to do something like:

(setq org-stuck-projects
   '("+LEVEL=2/-DONE" ("TODO" "NEXT" ...) ("TAG1" "TAG2" ...)))

I can see that this is unsatisfactory, so in the next version you will 
be able to specify "*" as a tag or a TODO keyword to indicate that you 
mean all of them.  For now this will only work in the context of stuck 
projects.

(setq org-stuck-projects
   '("+LEVEL=2/-DONE" ("*") ("*")))

In fact, the following will also be possible, allowing just what
you asked for:

(setq org-stuck-projects
     '("LEVEL=2/-DONE" ("*") ("*")
       "\\<\\(SCHEDULED\\|DEADLINE\\): <"))

The last element is an arbitrary regular expression.
If it matches in the project tree, the project is considered
unstuck.

I am trying this with 4.72. What does "LEVEL=2/-DONE" mean?

I wonder this because with the setting above, `C-c a #' still brings up
an empty list.

LEVEL=2/-DONE means that the search for stuck projects should consider
any level 2 entry (i.e. starting with **) as a project, but should 
immediately exclude projects where the top headline is marked DONE.

Starting from this, the project subtrees are then checked for TODO 
keywords and TAGS.

Thank you, Carsten.

However, it is weird that this doesn't respect the `org-odd-levels-only'
setting.

I set the following to achieve multiple DONE states (is there a better
way?):

   (setq org-todo-keywords '((sequence "ACTION" "DONE")
                            (sequence "|" "WAITING")))

But all projects marked with "WAITING" are still considered stuck.

I now set something like this:

  (setq org-stuck-projects
        '("LEVEL=3/-DONE-WAITING" ("*") ("*")
          "\\<\\(SCHEDULED\\|DEADLINE\\): <"))

But I think even without `-WAITING', projects shouldn't be considered
stuck due to the first `("*")'. Bug?

If you write it like this, WAITING is a DONE state.  Projects are not 
stuck if they have something TODO.  So a project which only has WAITING 
entries with the above definition is indeed stuck, because it will not 
produce entries in TODO lists.

maybe you should use:

    (setq org-todo-keywords '((sequence "ACTION" "DONE")
                             (sequence "WAITING" "|")))

?

I remember we had a discussion to make LEVEL=2 respect
`org-odd-levels-only' i.e. LEVEL=2 would mean headings starting with
three "*" when org-odd-levels-only is t.

However, after using this for such a long time I realise this is counter
intuitive. Thus if possible please revert the change.

All the best,

Hi Leo,

this is possible, but will break what people use, I am afraid.

Hi Carsten, long time no 'see'.

> this is possible, but will break what people use, I am afraid.

I re-read our discussion. Realising that org-odd-levels-only can be set
on a per file basis, now I think it is better to keep current
change. The remaining issue is to find a place to document the meaning
of LEVEL in org-stuck-projects.

Actually I have removed customisation of org-stuck-projects and use its
default value. With the flowing of so many new features into org, I find
less need to inspect stuck projects.

Hi Leo,

I am afraid there is no "good" solution to this problem, you can
always look at this two ways.

Would you like to suggest a place where this behavior
could be documented?
