[PATCH 1/2] emacs: Use a buffer-local variable to update tags when sending replies

Subject: [PATCH 1/2] emacs: Use a buffer-local variable to update tags when sending replies

Date: Sat, 30 Mar 2019 22:48:20 +0100

To: notmuch@notmuchmail.org


From: Örjan Ekeberg

Instead of relying on the "In-Reply-To" header, use a buffer-local variable,
notmuch-message-queued-tag-changes, to add and remove tags to affected
messages when the message-send-hook is triggered.
