It could be useful to have some documentation about installing and 
configuring Org with use-package [1].

I just redid my Org config this way, and I'm happy to say it works, though a 
use-package wizard would probably cut it in half.  (To me use-package is 
advanced magic, and I don't understand all the incantations.)

If anyone can suggest some good examples to look at, I'll try starting some 
documentation about it.  I know about Diego Zamboni [2] and Sacha Chua [3], but 
there must be more.  Things with custom faces and such would be especially 
welcome.

Hi Bill,

Glad you found my config already. For custom faces, I do a lot of
configuration interactively with =customize-face=, because it allows me to
play more freely with them. But you can see some examples in my config, and
also in my post at https://zzamboni.org/post/beautifying-org-mode-in-emacs/.

One tip I have found very useful when customizing org's faces is to use the
=what-cursor-position= command (bound by default to C-u C-x =) to show
information about the character under the cursor, including the face which
is being used for it. This helps a lot to know which face you have to
customize to fix something.

Have fun :)

--Diego
