Also, I think a similar option for > the xabian database would make sense. I think we agree it would be great to be able to configure the location of .notmuch. Unfortunately, the notmuch library currently assumes it can deduce the database location from the mail store location. The last I checked, making it configurable was a bit complicated, and so far nobody has thought it would be worth it. Making the hooks directory configurable would be significantly simpler. For the time being, you can work around the limitations by symlinking .notmuch or .notmuch/hooks to your preferred location. BR, Jani.
