2018-09-30 add-dir-local-variable - conclusion

In the last two posts, I wrote about Emacs directory variables. Last week, the conclusion was that there is no easy way for add-dir-local-variable to use the dotted pair notation in the .dir-locals.el file.

Well, I was wrong again. This week, a patch was made (and documented) in Emacs which enables exactly that behavior. I just checked it, and it works great. (If you are interested in that kind of stuff, you can read the start of the discussion here, and it is continued here.)

Not to mention that last week, Eli Zaretskii introduced several fixes in the documentation to clarify a few things related to directory variables.

What can I say? It’s just amazing.
