Thanks - this seems exactly what I need - if the idea of distributing
emacs extensions as tar files is completely abandoned.  I also see
reasons why going this route to deploy extensions is a good idea - and
the elpa-mirror package helps out for the "niche" of users who need to
deploy the extensions on machines that do not have access to the
internet.

Auctex also started recommending the install via elpa, but they still
offer the "traditional method" (at least on *nix).  

Best,
Chrsitian

I found out about and used elpa-mirror when I worked in
Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). Its connection with the net
was somewhat mysterious to me, and elpa-mirror was the answer.
WSL may have improved since then.

Hi,

I just got a bit confused about the announcement:

 "Also, Org 9.5 is available as tar.gz and zip archives, but this installation method is also deprecated."

From the methods that were available this was the easiest method for
obtaining and distributing the latest versions org-mode on systems
that have no internet accsess.  Can you elaborate why you want to
deprecate this method?

As I also wasn't able to locate neither the zip nor the tar I cloned
the git now like this:

git clone -b 'release_9.5' --single-branch --depth 1  https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/emacs/org-mode.git 

and made a .tar.gz from that.

Is this different then from what I would get if I download the tar
from GNU ELPA?

Please CC me in answers to the message, as I am not (yet) subscribed
to the org mailinglist.

Best regards,
Christian
