  20. ;; Attachments are managed in a special directory called "data", which
  21. ;; lives in the same directory as the org file itself. If this data
  22. ;; directory is initialized as a Git repository, then org-attach will
  23. ;; automatically commit changes when it sees them.
  24. ;;
  25. ;; Attachment directories are identified using a UUID generated for the
  26. ;; task which has the attachments. These are added as property to the
  27. ;; task when necessary, and should not be deleted or changed by the
  28. ;; user, ever. UUIDs are generated by a mechanism defined in the variable
  29. ;; `org-id-method'.
