Subject: Store link in message mode
Date: Mon, 15 Nov 2010 13:43:14 +0100 [thread overview]
Message-ID: <email@example.com> (raw)
After it's now possible for me to store an org link upon sending a
message I thought it might be even better to approach this problem in
a more general way. The idea is to use `org-store-link' in message mode
to create a link for the (yet to come) copy of the message.
Currently `org-store-link' seems to be rather pointless in message mode
as it creates a link to a draft (temporary) message file. Extending
`org-gnus-store-link' to let it create a gnus link to the copy of the
message when in message mode seems to be more reasonable.
However, there are some, er, `issues' with this.
1) This will only work with Gnus. Message mode is in principle
independent of Gnus but non-Gnus users will not benefit from
`org-store-link' in message mode.
2) Storing a link in message mode effectively creates a link to
something (the mail copy) that's (still) inexistent. This means that
the link remains invalid until the message is actually sent (or more
precisely: the copy is created upon sending).
Furthermore, the link will be invalid if
- the message is not sent;
- the Gcc header is modified to point to a different group;
- the message id is changed.
And of course, the link description will be incorrect if Subject,
From and/or To headers are changed between calling `org-store-link'
and creating the message's copy.
If you think --despite of those issues-- it's worth adding the creation
of gnus links while in message mode I could provide a patch. I'd
probably add the functionality to `org-gnus-store-link' but I'm not an
org code expert and a different location may be more appropriate. What
do you think?
