May I request some more pre-defined conditions when using
org-agenda-skip-* functions e.g. due and not due, optionally
accepting a date+time to compare against (using current date and
time as default)?  Hope this makes sense.

Hi Manish, I have not done so yet for the skipping mechanism. But I have just implemented time comparisons for property searches. For example:


I guess this should go a long way....

Thank you very much.

I have a question though:

So when I say DEADLINE<="<today>" and if the deadline has a
timestamp ( < current time ), then it will not be listed.  Is my
understanding correct?  I wonder if "<today>" should not be
better pegged at 23:59 of today's date?

which would fail if you did DEADLINE>="<today>"

There is not good solution for this. <today> uses the date without a time, in order to provide for comparison with deadline dates that are only a date, not a time. If your deadlines have times associated with them, better use a date and time explicitly. I could provide yesterday and tomorrow, maybe....
