I want to have a stuck projects list that shows me headlines that:

  1. Do not have a child item that is either NEXT or WAIT
  2. Do not have a child item with a timestamp that is in the future

The current definition for the stuck block in my org-agenda-custom-commands is this:

(stuck ""
       ((org-agenda-overriding-header "Stuck projects")
        (org-agenda-files (list "~/org/gtd/projects/"))
        (org-stuck-projects '("+LEVEL=1/-DONE" ("NEXT" "WAIT") nil nil))
        (org-agenda-skip-function '(org-agenda-skip-entry-if 'timestamp))))

There are 2 problems with my current definition:

  1. The org-agenda-skip-function does not seem to do anything at all (changing from 'timestamp to 'nottimestamp for example does not seem to make a difference)
  2. Were the skip function to do anything, it would probably also count dates in the past, not in the future

How do I get a list of stuck projects that do not have a NEXT, WAIT, or timestamp-in-the-future child?
