To make sense it should say something like ".... for which > see the doc string for `org-log-into-drawer', or even better the way > Achim's patch is worded. I've looked through some Emacs documentation and it is indeed the case that ", which see." or "(which see)" is used in many places to make reference to the documentation of a variable or function that has been mentioned by name. I'll just leave it at that and suggest it might be discussed on an appropriate Emacs list if necessary.
