* Org mode behavior change in 27.2 (org-adapt-indentation)

I upgraded from 27.1 to 27.2-rc2 over the weekend and noticed that Org
mode behaves differently, even with "emacs -Q".

In 27.1, if I visit foo.org and type "* header RET", point is put in the
first column.  In 27.2, point is put in column 3.

This behavior is apparently controlled by org-adapt-indentation, which
is t in both 27.1 and 27.2.  So maybe the behavior change is the result
of a bug fix?  Should this be documented in NEWS somewhere?

Which NEWS are you reading, though?  Org has its own news, see
etc/ORG-NEWS.

It looks like Emacs 27.1 has Org 9.3, whereas Emacs 27.2 has Org 9.4.  I
don't see anything in the 9.4 section of ORG-NEWS that calls out the
change in behavior.  There's some discussion about a new allowed value
for org-adapt-indentation, but it doesn't seem to imply that the
behavior has changed when org-adapt-indentation is t.

BTW, what's the expected mechanism for a user to view ORG-NEWS?  I see
that it's installed into the "share" tree, but I don't see how to view
it via Help or Info.  (I can open a bug about this if it would be
helpful.)

thanks,
mike

Then please ask the Org developers, preferably on the Org mailing
list.  maybe they forgot to mention something in their NEWS.

Looks like Org->Documentation->Browse Org news is it, but it takes you
to their site...

Feel free.

Does it make sense to add an entry to NEWS along the lines of "Org has been
updated to version 9.4; see ORG-NEWS ('C-x C-v ORG-NEWS') for details."?

It does, but who will add such a line, and how do we make sure it is
there?  I'm afraid as long as Org is maintained elsewhere, there will
always be such cracks to fall though.

There is a section about this in the org NEWS file. Previously, org did not
support electric-indent-mode. Adding this support means that
org-adapt-indentation now acts slightly differently than it did before and
can be impacted by the setting of electric-indent-mode.

I would agree that the NEWS item on org-adaptive-indent should probably
referrence the entry on electric-indent-mode (and vice-versa) and the two
entries probably should be closer together in the NEWS file.

Ah, I see now.  I didn't even realize electric-indent-mode was
enabled--it doesn't appear in the minor mode list in the modeline, nor
does it appear in the minor mode mode-line menu. :-(

Thanks for explaining.

FWIW, Bastien supports changing the default value of
org-adapt-indentation to 'headline-data[1], which roughly means "do not
indent regular text; only indent :DRAWERS:".  AFAICT the change has not
been made yet because 'headline-data still has a few issues to iron out.

This additional change would probably have helped prevent the uproar we
saw on the org-mode mailing list (… and the uproar yet to come once 27.2
is released).

(Also FWIW, the .dir-locals.el file at the top of org-mode's repository
sets org-adapt-indentation to nil; that might say something about the
opinion of Org developers as to the "canonical" indentation of Org
documents)

FWIW, I continue to use 'headline-data for `org-adapt-indentation' but
others convinced me that `org-adapt-indentation' should be nil by default.

I opened a poll about this on the Org-mode mailing list:
https://orgmode.org/list/878s4x3bwh.fsf@gnu.org/

Don't hesitate to share your opinion there.
