This will give maintainers of 'canned' configs, like spacemacs and doom time to update their setups. However, just to clarify. As I understand it, after 9.5, there will no longer be an 'org-plus-contrib' package. Those who now use org-plus-contrib will need to update their config to install org (fro ELPA) and org-contrib (from NONGNU ELPA). The good news is nothing will break. When you do an update, there just won't be an updated org-plus-contrib and you will remain on 9.5. Only after you have updated your config will you get a version > 9.5. -- Tim Cross
