Re: [O] Agenda: Display projects and 3 todo subtasks

I ran into another possible solution for the request of seeing the first
X TODO tasks for a project in the Agenda:

Let's say I simply run an org-tags-todo query looking for :project:

The Agenda now shows this:


Another possible solution would be to simply TAB to one of the projects, and
run org-todo-list with the restriction on the current subtree.

I'm trying to find a way to create a function to do this . . . . . . I guess
a macro-like function would work

Hmm, you're right, that project subtask snippet isn't working any more. I don't think I can sort that out while I'm away from my computer, so it may take me a few weeks until I can poke around. If anyone happens to have a better config, please feel free to share!

I forgot to mention that I have PROJECT tag as not inheritable:
(setq org-tags-exclude-from-inheritance (quote ("PROJECT")))

And here's the agenda custom-command addition:
 ("2" "List projects with tasks" my/org-agenda-projects-and-tasks
         ((org-agenda-max-entries 3))

Hello all,

I found this cool snippet at Sacha Chua's website: [1].  

It creates an agenda view with headings marked with tag "project",
and for each of those headings, it displays up to 3 sub headings marked TODO.

I like this idea of seeing my projects (plus a few TODO entries under each project)
in the agenda is a cool idea, so I copy/pasted the snippet at [1].

I created an example org file:
* Project 1                                                    :PROJECT:
** todo task 1.1
** todo task 1.2
** todo task 1.3
** todo task 1.4
* Project 2                                                    :PROJECT:
** todo task 2.1
** todo task 2.2
** todo task 2.3
** todo task 2.4

And ran the custom agenda command on only that file.

The output which is produced lists each project correctly.
However the sub-tasks under each project are the *same 3 subtasks*
from Project 1

  foo:        Project 1
  foo:        todo task 1.1
  foo:        todo task 1.2
  foo:        todo task 1.3
  foo:        Project 2
  foo:        todo task 1.1
  foo:        todo task 1.2
  foo:        todo task 1.3

The snippet at [1] is a bit more complex than I thought would be necessary for such
an agenda view.  Does someone have any snippets or suggestions for how to
accomplish the idea above?  Is there something obvious that I'm missing about
the setup of my test org file?
