[Orgmode] [PATCH] org-remember: Skip creation of the default '* Notes' t

From: Bernt Hansen
Subject: [Orgmode] [PATCH] org-remember: Skip creation of the default '* Notes' task
Date: Thu, 9 Apr 2009 17:19:32 -0400

Remember and refile processing does not require a task.  This change
removes the unneeded default task.

This supports a workflow where new remember tasks and notes go into a
mostly empty file which just has #+FILETAGS: at the top and nothing

This workflow has a minimal number of remember templates
  - one for new tasks and (filed in tasks.org)
  - one for new notes (filed in notes.org)
  - one for phone calls (filed in phone.org)

New tasks are added as top-level tasks to the end of these files and
the #+FILETAGS: REFILE header causes each task to be easy to find.
All tasks in these files are refiled to a more appropriate org file at
a later time.
Carsten, (and list)

I've started using this new workflow just this week and org remember insisted
on creating an annoying '* Notes' task before my #+FILETAGS: line since there
were no tasks in the file yet.  I'm refiling as top-level tasks at the end
of the file and the '* Notes' task was just in the way.  I couldn't find any 
good reason to keep this so this patch removes the requirement.  I find tasks
to refile with a custom agenda tag search looking for the tag REFILE and this
change gets rid of the bogus 'Notes' task that kept showing up.

Let me know if I missed some reason you really need this '* Notes' default
