Hi Ihor,

No, my attachment folder is build using :ID: property. For example, in
my heading:

*   Test
    :ID: d0e690e2-2ecd-4224-891a-b91257db5389

And if I evaluate `org-attach-dir' here, it returns the correct path:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp 


But if I evaluate this, I get an 'incomplete' path:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp 
(expand-file-name org-attach-id-dir)

: /home/juanmanuel/Documentos/docs-compartidos/org/data/

So if I replace `(expand-file-name org-attach-id-dir)' with
`(org-attach-dir)' in `(org-attach-git-commit)' [line 7, the `dir'
variable], it works fine when I run 'C-c C-a z'.

Best regards
