Hi Samuel,

do not want to make the criteria in org-refile-targets any more complex.
But you can now write a verification function and put it into the new
variable org-refile-target-verify-function.

I want to eliminate DONE and similar states
from the list of refile targets.  The benefits would be:

 1) The set of candidates is reduced, requiring fewer
    keystrokes to select a target.
 2) The possibility of misfiling into a task that will be
    archived is reduced.
 3) The list length is reduced, helping to work around some
    of the speed problems that I have been experiencing with
    ido.  This is possibly at the cost of slower creation of the
    initial list, however.

The documentation for org-refile-targets says:

 - a cons cell (:todo . "KEYWORD") to identify refile
   targets by todo keyword.

In principle I might get the desired behavior by including
all kw /except/ doneish ones, and also including the empty

But if I did so, I don't think it would work, because I
already set (:maxlevel . 5).  I did not find a way to
specify that I want non-doneish entries (including blank)
that are below level 6.

Would it be feasible to allow AND and NOT?

 (setq org-refile-targets
`((,(file-expand-wildcards (substitute-in-file-name "$dorg/ *.org"))
          . (and (:maxlevel . 5)
                 (not (:todo . "DONE"))
                 (not (:todo . "MOST"))
                 (not (:todo . "MOOT"))
                 (not (:todo . "DUPLICATE"))))))[fn:13]

Or is there a way that I can do this with existing org?


[fn:13] Or (not (todo "DONE")) or (not (or (todo "DONE")
