I wanted to point out that, we are fast approaching a situation where
org manual will become the size of the Emacs manual. :-)  For me, I
use org for the core purpose of task tracker, that's it.  As long as
that core is not messed around with, I'd be happy with an infinite
number of customisable vars.

I haven't done any customisation apart from what is required to
recognise org files and the state transitions that I need for various
states of the TODO items.


(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.org$" . org-mode)) 
(define-key global-map "\C-cl" 'org-store-link) 
(define-key global-map "\C-ca" 'org-agenda) 
(setq org-log-done t) 
(add-hook 'org-mode-hook 'turn-on-font-lock) ; org-mode buffers only 
(setq org-todo-keywords 
  '((sequence "TODO" "InProgress" "OnHold" "|" "DONE" ))) 
(setq org-agenda-files (list "c:/work/tasks.org"))
(add-hook 'org-mode-hook
                    (lambda () 'imenu-add-to-menubar "Imenu"))
