Raising a toast in the memory of mailing lists as the contribution channel 4 months ago

From Vedang to ~protesilaos/denote

Hello Prot,

While I completely understand and support your decision to move Denote
development over to Github, I'd like to say:

Denote was the first project I used after 2008 where I had to push
patches to a mailing list for contributing, and I was so happy about
how easy the process is, as compared to PRs on Github. I know that I
am probably in the minority here, but I'm genuinely sad that the
developer community considers PRs easier.

I read through your post[1] and I can see how the email based workflow
is terrible for maintainers, but I must say that it is a breeze for
contributors :)

[PATCH] Fix: Handle no-matching-files in denote-sort-dired 6 months ago

From Vedang Manerikar to ~protesilaos/denote

Where there are no files matching the input regex,
`denote-sort-get-directory-files` returns nil. Passing this to `dired`
throws an error:
(file-missing "Reading directory" "No such file or directory" ".../denote/Testing Dired")

This commit handles the empty case by returning an appropriate error

[PATCH 2/2] Fix: Ensure signature is sluggified correctly when renaming 7 months ago

From Vedang Manerikar to ~protesilaos/denote

Based on the bug found in the previous commit, I looked at all the
call-sites for `denote-sluggify-signature` and
`denote-retrieve-filename-signature` and found two other places:

1. `denote-rename-file`: Add check to ensure signature exists when
   trying to sluggify it.

2. `denote-rename-file-using-front-matter`: Sluggify the signature
   before creating the new file-name.

[PATCH 1/2] Fix: Handle signature in denote-dired-rename-marked-files-with-keywords 7 months ago

From Vedang Manerikar to ~protesilaos/denote

I hit this bug when I called `M-x
denote-dired-rename-marked-files-with-keywords` on the file at point
in a dired buffer. The stack-trace is as follows:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (wrong-type-argument arrayp nil)
  replace-regexp-in-string("[][{}!@#$%^&*()=+'\"?,.|;:~`‘’“”/]*-" "" nil)
  denote--slug-no-punct(nil "-")

`denote-sluggify-signature` gets a `nil` input which it cannot handle.
This happens because the signature is extracted using

[PATCH] Fix: denote-extract-keywords-from-front-matter should always return a list 7 months ago

From Vedang Manerikar to ~protesilaos/denote

I hit this bug when I called `M-x
denote-change-file-type-and-front-matter` on an Org file with empty
filetags, to convert it to Markdown-YAML format.

This is the front-matter of the original file:
   #+title:      Great Content is the Heart of Audience Building

[PATCH] Fix: Trim denote-rename-buffer to avoid "uninteresting buffers" 7 months ago

From Vedang Manerikar to ~protesilaos/denote

I hit this bug when I did the following:

1. Modify the default `denote-rename-buffer-format` from "%t" to
   "%s %t" to display signatures
2. Open a Denote file which did not have a signature.
3. Wonder why the buffer did not show up in buffer-listing functions,
   and why undo wouldn't work on it and so on.

The answer is here:

    > Buffers that are ephemeral and generally uninteresting to the
    > user have names starting with a space, so that the list-buffers
    > and buffer-menu commands don't mention them (but if such a

Re: [PATCH 3/3] Create denote-create-extra for new note convenience functions 8 months ago

From Vedang to ~protesilaos/denote

Thank you Prot.

I have updated to the latest version of Denote today and will test the
changes to ensure everything is working properly.

For the rest of the changes in this patch, should I copy them over to
denote-silo-extras and create a new patch? Or will you be adding it
slowly post testing on your end?

Let me know!

Strong +1 to local-time everywhere, exactly for the reasons nobiot outlines.
