Hi all,

in a clean emacs-28 install I do:

    M-x package-install <Enter> org<Enter>

I get:

    Possible completions are:
        org-contrib org-edna org-real org-translate orgalist

package-archives has:

    (("gnu" . "https://elpa.gnu.org/packages/")
     ("nongnu" . "https://elpa.nongnu.org/nongnu/"))

I do list-packages, org is now listed as available in gnu archive, I
install it from there, relaunch emacs (again with -Q), do
(package-initialize) and:

- check org-version: it's still the builtin one.

- check load-path: doesn't include my ~/.emacs.d/elpa/org-9.5
directory (although it exists and installing other packages works as
expected)

So many things are not working properly:

1. I'm unable to install org using package-install.

2. I can install it from the package list but then it's not added to load-path.

3. Of course the builtin version gets loaded instead of the elpa one.

All this is in a recent build from emacs-28 with default configure
options (including native compilation).

Best regards,
Carlos

This might be because the builtin version is the same as the one in
elpa (although if that's the case the UI is somewhat confusing) but
I'm not sure about that because I don't quite understand the
relationship between builtin versions and stable external releases. I
mean, is builtin org only updated to match external releases or does
it follow a different cadence? Does a strict number version match
between builtin and external implies exactly the same org revision?
And in this case, is it expected that package.el doesn't offer org as
a valid installation target nor prepends org's local path to the
builtin one?

Best regards,
Carlos
