I don't think it's too big, but I do think that some of the pre-existing
issues probably need to be ironed out first. Testing these patches is
tricky when the result messages and UI updates can't be trusted.

I'm not sure when/if I'll get around to those pre-existing issues. I'm
currently using a comfy tag-based workflow, so I rarely end up using
this multi-file stuff anyway. If anyone else wants to pick up on it in
the meantime, I'd be happy to help out where needed, though.

Re: Visual mode indicator a month ago

Seems like that would be handy -- I get confused all the time. It's not
currently possible. Here's a patch to stick it in the TrayInfo in the
status bar:


[PATCH aerc] templates: add visual mode indicator to TrayInfo a month ago

From Jason Cox to ~rjarry/aerc-devel

It's useful to have some indicator of whether or not aerc is in visual
mark mode. Add such an indicator to the TrayInfo available in the status

Changelog-changed: The TrayInfo template variable includes a visual
 mark mode indicator.

Hi Stefan,

Random question -- what does this "tag:7days..now" do?

I think it's reasonable to map the recent flag to something, and as

This patch fixes the plus bind issue I reported in IRC. Thanks!

I noticed that problem as well -- annoying.

[PATCH aerc v3 3/3] notmuch: add strategies for multi-file messages a month ago

From Jason Cox to ~rjarry/aerc-devel

A single notmuch message can represent multiple files. As a result,
file-based operations like move, copy, and delete can be ambiguous. Add
a new account config option, multi-file-strategy, to tell aerc how to
handle these ambiguous cases. Also add options to relevant commands to
set the multi-file strategy on a per-invocation basis.

If no multi-file strategy is set, refuse to take file-based actions on
multi-file messages. This default behavior is mostly the same as aerc's
previous behavior, but a bit stricter in some cases which previously
tried to be smart about multi-file operations (e.g., move and delete).

Applying multi-file strategies to cross-account copy and move operations
is not implemented. These operations will proceed as they have in the
past -- aerc will copy/move a single file. However, for cross-account

[PATCH aerc v3 2/3] notmuch: simplify moving a message a month ago

From Jason Cox to ~rjarry/aerc-devel

Delete the existing file from the database after indexing the new one to
avoid the need to remember and re-apply tags.

[PATCH aerc v3 1/3] notmuch: ignore duplicate msg ID error on delete a month ago

From Jason Cox to ~rjarry/aerc-devel

According to the comments in notmuch.h, removing a file returns
NOTMUCH_STATUS_DUPLICATE_MESSAGE_ID when the "filename was removed but
the message persists in the database with at least one other filename."

Based on the fact that the db.DeleteMessage() function is used in a
context that explicitly recognizes the possibility of multiple files and
only attempts to delete one of them, I'm fairly certain that the
existing behavior of ignoring all errors *except* the deplicate message
ID error is the result of a typo. (It also doesn't make sense to ignore
