Maybe upstream Emacs should be changed to include it in the tar bar.

[PATCH] Call notmuch-show using its documented calling convention 7 months ago

From Sean Whitton to ~tarsius/public-inbox

The first argument to `notmuch-show' is documented to be a notmuch thread ID,
not a notmuch query.  If you pass a query then the buffer-local variable
`notmuch-show-thread-id' is populated with a value that is not a thread ID,
which breaks various other things.

`org-notmuch-follow-link' should continue to accept an arbitrary notmuch
query, because notmuch thread IDs are not stable.

How about just setting up meta, lists and builds, leaving debbugs and
savannah doing bug tracking and git hosting, and then add 'todo' and
