Subject: Re: [BUG] org-agenda-filter and hyphens in category names
Date: Fri, 4 Sep 2020 14:00:57 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAJcAo8vYfPwcC0Ji0aBbhiio9yODrHbPUBgiG0v-GHVNDHK3ZQ@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

i was unaware of this feature, bound to / in maint, so i tried it in
maint before the fix and got a different result.

all of my categories have hyphens, and many of my files.  i suspect on
linux, osx, bsd*, etc., hyphenated filenames are common.

my categories look like e-remember, e-refile, e-jinsei, o-bastien
[just kidding], o-matt-lundin [ditto], etc.  this allows me to have
broad meta-categories like computer, org, extra, medical.

so i tried it with e-, and it completed to e-refile without providing
any choice.  this is just incorrect.  i really like hyphens so i hope
they become first-class if possible.
