[O] Change default value of org-refile-use-outline-path?

Hello, I wonder if there'd be any interest in changing the default value of `org-refile-use-outline-path' to something other than nil? I can't imagine the nil default would be anyone's preference (at least not anyone with more than a handful of headings in a single file). How about 'file as a

[O] orgalist list item spacing

2018-09-14 Thread Eric Abrahamsen
I'm a happy user of orgalist, it's very nice to be able to have basic Org structures in email. One thing I noticed is that if a paragraph line wraps so that the last line has a number followed by a full stop, orgalist treats that as a list item. It seems to me that text should not be considered a

[O] customizable org-attach commands?

I'd like to provide a patch making the org-attach dispatcher customizable. ie a new custom option `org-attach-commands' that maps characters to functions, and then the dispatch function builds its menu from that option. Would that be acceptable? What I'm trying to do is add my own org-attach
