Emacs syncs irregularly with the latest released version of Org. I was completely unaware of this. I also used to report bugs via emacs' report-emacs-bug fascility. Moreover, I am building emacs from `master' everyday and assuming everything is latest on this. If Org is a different beast then probably we should do two things: 1. Remove Org from built-in packages and distribute only via ELPA 2. And have a completely separate infrastructure for development, mailing-lists, bug reports. This we already have. But we should follow convention so that it is easier for user to report-org-bugs. > Bug report affecting the latest release of Org can be submitted to this > mailing list.

I am trying to use `use-package' for package management via the init file. And when I do (use-package org :ensure t) it doesn't install the latest. It uses the builtin package only. Is this a bug in emacs, use-package or elpa?
