it looks like you guys may have found what was giving me problems with
latex export. i would like to pull carsten's changes, but i have  a few
questions before i get carried away..

i am currently running 6.17c that i downloaded as a tarball. this is not
under version control.

my question is, if i git the development version, is that the one that
carsten is pushing his changes to?

also.. i have no problems with running development software, and am more
than willing to contribute to the project, so i don't need to make sure
that i have a stable tarball at all times.

if this is the correct repo, i will just clone it, make it, and see if
my latex issue goes away..

thanks!

Sergio,

Yes, the development version is the one Carsten is pushing changes to.  You
can see the activity here:
http://repo.or.cz/w/org-mode.git

If that's what you want, you can just clone it, as you said.

My guess is that instability will rarely be an issue, even with the cutting
edge.

Scot

There's a nice FAQ entry on this:

This reminds me that I had a couple of minor niggles with this process
when I tried to pull a new version:

1. Shouldn't the Makefile "install" target have "install-info" added
as a dependency? Otherwise, item 3 of the FAQ entry should be modified
to include "make install-info". Also, the default installation
directory is /usr/local, which is not usually user-writable, so it
should be "sudo make install".

2. Item 6 in the FAQ entry says "You should restart org mode to have
the changes take effect". What is the best way to do this? I couldn't
get anything to work, short of rebooting emacs.

Cheers

Will

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.

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)))
`----
