FWIW, I just do "make clean && make && make doc" and skip "make install" entirely (and refer to HTML documentation.) I guess it's okay for me since I am the sole user of this installation. Location of Org is added to .emacs by: ,---- | (add-to-list 'load-path "~/elisp/org-mode.git/lisp") `---- So it's just "cd ~/elisp/org-mode.git/ && git pull && make clean && make && make doc" (followed by reloading org from inside Emacs) whenever I wish to upgrade. > 2.

You can reload Org mode by "M-x org-mode-restart" but I also found a few times that it did not work. And then Bernt posted this a while ago which solved the problem of loading new version for me. ,---- | (setq my-org-mode-git-directory "~/elisp/org-mode.git") | | (defun org-reload-org (&optional source) | "Reload Compiled Org lisp files." | (interactive "p") | (message "source is %s" source) | (if (equal source 4) | (setq my-org-files "\\.el\\'") | (setq my-org-files "\\.elc\\'")) | (mapc (lambda(f) (load (car f))) | (directory-files-and-attributes (concat my-org-mode-git-directory "/lisp") t my-org-files))) `---- Regards, -- Manish
