[Howm-eng 98] synchronizing howm notes over several computers
Hello, only recently did I start to use howm, and it seems that this will turn out a very valuable tool for me to use with just the right mix of functionality and simplicity - thanks a lot! However, there are a few points that I am not so clear about, and my fluency in elisp is rather poor. I am not quite sure whether this mailing list is still alive and the right place to ask questions about howm, so I will just try with the most pressing thing first: - I need to be using howm on several different computers, without any network connection between them most of the time. Am I correct in assuming that it is sufficient for me to simply synchronize the various `howm-directory`s, and to copy any changes between the accounts without relying on emacs/howm itself? For this I would probably use a revision control system, probably darcs. - The thread on "Separating work and personal", and <http://sourceforge.jp/projects/howm/lists/archive/eng/2008/000059.html> in particular, make me suspect that I also have to take care of the various `howm-keyword-file`s. But the contents of `howm-keyword-file` should actually be a function of the files contained under howm-directory, so that it seems reasonable to me to re-generate the keyword file afresh after pulling the changed notes. As this should be little more than a `grep >>>`, this should not be too slow (at least for now). So what is the easiest way to re-generate `howm-keyword-file`? My impression is that it should be sufficient to delete the file whenever there are changes to it. Thanks a lot in advance for any light you can shed on this question! Albert.
