I wouldn't be writing this if the documentation were reasonable.  Once 
org-mode gets cloned, how is git properly used to update the cloned 
instance on a machine?

What's unreasonable about the doc?

If you don't have any local changes, see 

   http://orgmode.org/worg/org-faq.html#sec-3_2

If you *do* have local changes, see

   http://orgmode.org/worg/org-faq.html#sec-3_3

Compare that documentation with the documentation written for 
micro-emacs, that should give you an idea what I mean by reasonable 
documentation.  Also, thanks for the faq pointers.

I wouldn't be writing this if your comment were reasonable.


The following should be more than sufficient:
  - http://orgmode.org/manual/Installation.html#Installation
  - http://orgmode.org/worg/org-faq.html#Keeping-current


In the *highly unlikely* case that it isn't:
  You're probably already aware of this (though this awareness may be
  temporarily impeded due to Saturday night related inebriation), but
  it's worth noting that Org-mode's documentation documents Org-mode.

  Org-mode != git, otherwise it would be called git instead of Org-mode, see?

  Kindly refer to some relevant (and extremely abundant) documentation:
  - http://git-scm.com/documentation


Peace

1) so we understand each other.  My complaint has nothing to do with 
   org-mode's documentation and everything to do with the documentation 
   for git itself.On Sun, 5 Jun 2011, Pieter Praet wrote:

Oh, I see :D

So your query should have been directed to the git mailing list [1],
but I admit that whether it would've garnered any useful responses is
rather doubtful.


Assuming you have no prior experience with distributed version control,
the following should be a very clear and concise introduction:
- http://eagain.net/articles/git-for-computer-scientists/
- http://hoth.entp.com/output/git_for_designers.html
- http://www-cs-students.stanford.edu/~blynn/gitmagic/


It's really worth the effort, as it'll pay back in no time.

Very soon you'll wonder how you've ever been able to work without it ;)

[was there supposed to be a 2) etc?]

1) It would have helped if you had said that to begin with: I was left
   wondering what "that" documentation was. And the comparison with the
   micro-emacs doc was entirely impenetrable to me. Can you provide a
   pointer to that doc? Daniel Lawrence's site seems to be gone.

2) For git, Pieter provided some appropriate links. I'll take the
   opportunity to recommend Scott Chacon's book (http://progit.org/book).

3) For future reference, here are pointers to a couple of useful
   documents on how to ask questions and how to submit bug reports:

     http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html
     http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html

   The first is linked from the main orgmode page (http://orgmode.org);
   the second is linked from the "How to contribute" page on Worg
   (http://orgmode.org/worg/org-contribute.html). I recommend both of
   these to everybody.

The only place microemacs might be by now could be some orphan version of 
the simtel archives.  Taken down but last I knew not entirely removed from 
the internet. On Sat, 4 Jun 2011, Nick Dokos wrote:

If you set up the clone correctly (assuming you use a local branch for
keeping your customizations to the Makefile), all you need to do is

$ git pull && make clean && make install

But there's literally hundreds of different ways to configure things
depending on what you want to do.  Please check the orgmode FAQ if one
of the "recipes" for using Git+Orgmode there does what you want,
otherwise you will have to learn about Git first (or in parallel).  If
you want to experiment with Git, you can always do another clone locally
so you have something to play with that can be thrown away if you mess
it up.

uemacs is not microemacs those are two entirely different products and 
Daniel Lawrence was responsible for microemacs.  Not only that for 
screen reader users in dos, uemacs wrote to the screen incorrectly and 
too fast for screen readers to speak.
