Hello everyone,
I'm a recent org-mode convert (after hearing the talk) and without question, it's one of the best things I've ever used. Thank you for making such a wonderful program.

However, org-mode and emacs being what they are, I'm tempted to try and customise it to do more. :)

I'm trying a simple trick to insert the version control history of my current file formatted as a table when I export the org file into HTML or ascii. I need this to track changes to design documents etc.

I'm using dynamic blocks to do this and have a function defined to insert the output of

git log --pretty='format:|%ad|%s|' (buffer-file-name)

into the block.

This works fine if I run org-update-all-dblocks from the org buffer itself manually. If I export it however, (buffer-file-name) returns a null string so I get the entire log of my repository which is not what I want.

In what way are you calling the update of dblocks during export? Have you added a function to this effect to a hook? Which function? To which hook?

Is there a way to get the buffer/file which is being exported so that I can use that in the command rather than buffer-file-name?

  Thanks in advance and for such an awesome mode.
