[Pkg-emacsen-addons] Bug#887332: org-mode no longer automatically saves archive files

Package: elpa-org
Version: 9.1.6+dfsg-1
Severity: minor

I have org-mode archive completed items into a separate file,
configured with:

(setq org-archive-location "~/data/org/archive/%s::")

org-mode used to save that archive file after each archived item.
When upgrading from 9.1.2 to 9.1.5, this behavior stopped; now
archive/foo.org is kept as an open buffer in Emacs with unsaved
data.  This means that if I exit Emacs without saving, it leaves
an autosave file behind, and I have to answer a prompt when exiting
Emacs since I otherwise never visit that buffer.

I can see why upstream would have made this change, since it's a
bit more consistent with how Emacs normally works, but I preferred
the old behavior.  It would be nice if there were some non-default
option I could set to request org-mode always save the archive file
after archiving an item.
