Subject: tags-todo org-agenda-custom-command weirdness

Message-ID: <> (raw)


I'm seeing some weirdness with tags-todo vs tags custom agenda commands.
Below is the smallest case I've managed to narrow it down to. I would
*expect* that all the a1-4 commands return the same results, and that
the b1-4 return the same results. That is not what I'm seeing, however.

(setq-default org-agenda-custom-commands
	      '(("a1" "A1" tags-todo "-PROJ/TODO")
                ("a2" "A2" tags "-PROJ/TODO")
		("a3" "A3" ((tags-todo "-PROJ/TODO")))
		("a4" "A4" ((tags "-PROJ/TODO")))
		("b1" "B1" tags-todo "-PROJ/DONE")
		("b2" "B2" tags "-PROJ/DONE")
		("b3" "B3" ((tags-todo "-PROJ/DONE")))
		("b4" "B4" ((tags "-PROJ/DONE")))))

The effect of a1 & a2 appears identical to eachother, and a3 & a4 too,
but a1-2 and a3-4 differ (in that the former seems to include scheduled
items, but the latter does not.)

What I'm seeing for b1-4 is even weirder. Here I observe b1, b2 and b4
have identical behaviour[*], but b3 is the odd one out: while the other
three return a list of DONE non-project tasks, b3 doesn't find anything.

[*] I suspect the reason b2 and b4 are identical is that I have no
scheduled DONE tasks.

I also see this with =m= vs =M= in the org-agenda menu. I see it even
when starting emacs with -q, so it appears to not be some spectactular
breakage on my part. Is anyone else seing this?
