Hi all,
Over the past couple of days I've been happily tweaking my org-mode
settings. At one point something happened that gave me great pause. I
forgot to load a function that adds an APA style LaTeX export (using
apa6e.cls) to my org-export-latex-classes Alist. So of course when I
tried to export using that class it did not work. This made me realize
that my .org document depended on my .emacs file for export! This
strikes me as a very bad thing because if I want others to be able to
use my .org document I have to distribute (at least the relevant parts
of) my .emacs along with it.

So all this got me thinking that perhaps setting up lots of
complicated org-mode related stuff in my .emacs is a bad idea, and
that perhaps I should use a template to do the setup in each .org

Please share any tips or suggestions you have related to this. What do
you do? How well does it work? What suggestions do you have for
someone just starting out with org-mode?
