Subject: Bug: org-set-tags-command deletes inherited tags [9.3.7 (9.3.7-18-g093b47-elpaplus @ /home/ionasal/.emacs.d/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20200810/)]
Date: Tue, 18 Aug 2020 15:42:23 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <80a6yry3sg.fsf@felesatra.moe> (raw)

[-- Attachment #1: Type: text/plain, Size: 664 bytes --]

Example Org file:

* Parent :foo:bar:baz:
** Child :foo:bar:spam:

Invoking org-set-tags-command with point on Child prepopulates the
minibuffer prompt with only the tags :spam:

This is because org-get-tags doesn't distinguish between inherited only
tags and inherited tags which are also explicitly set on a heading, so
org-set-tags-command treats :foo:bar: as inherited only rather than also
set locally on the heading.

This is undesirable because having tags set directly on a heading has
different semantics even if they are also inherited (e.g., the TAGS
special property, or when headings will be refiled to a different
location later).

Attached patch.
