Hello Chris,

Sorry for the delay, had to attend a meeting.

Yes that is correct. It folds into the last chapter, and I too find this
sub-optimal. If there was a way to specify certain headlines were
"special" and needed to be exported according to the sub-tree
properties, that would be ideal. Although I haven't looked into it, I'm
afraid it would require some lisp intervention.

That said, I just found a possible workaround. If you put the appendix
and bibliography and friends under the Footnotes headline, it somewhat
replicates the behaviour I would like to have. Something like this:

* Footnotes

[fn:1] footnote 1
[fn:2] footnote 2

#+INCLUDE: thesis-appendix.org :minlevel 1

#+LaTeX: \backmatter
#+LaTeX: \newpage

#+LaTeX: \bibliographystyle{plain}
#+LaTeX: \bibliography{master}

After my thesis defence I might actually get around to attempting to
deal with this in lisp. Would be a good learning excercise. :)
