I think I changed that behaviour originally in commit dc43885

I was looking for a way to select tasks with no effort so I could define
an effort before working on them.

I'd like to retain the ability to find tasks with no effort easily.
There's probably a better solution that the one I came up with.


Are you doing this now using filtering for effort, or a property search for Effort?

   Treat no effort defined as 0 minutes.

This changes the default value for Effort during agenda filtering so that an undefined Effort value is treated as 0 instead of nil. Tasks with no effort defined now return zero effort when selecting tasks for
   the filter.

There was effectively no way to select 'tasks with no effort defined'
   using the agenda effort filter.  The '<' operator is interpreted as
   '<=' and the default effort selection defined in
   org-agenda-filter-by-tag starts with zero ("0 0:10 ...") so this
change just treats tasks with no effort defined the same as tasks with
   an effort of 0.

   This allows fast selection of NEXT tasks with no effort defined.
Column view with follow-mode active in the agenda is great for quickly filling in the agenda estimated effort values for tasks. Just display
   your Next tasks, then / 0 to select tasks with no effort and enter
   column mode (C-c C-x C-c) and fill in your effort values with the
quick keys (0-9) for all of the tasks that have blanks in the effort
