  i'm reading the FAQ, section about upgrading org, and it's not clear
what one would do in the following situation.

  i'm running ubuntu 12.04 and in emacs running "M-x org-version" i
get, "version 6.33x".  however, ubuntu has a separate org-mode package
and, after installing that package via "apt-get install" and
restarting emacs, i get "version 7.8.02".

  that seems to work fine.  if that's an acceptable way to upgrade
org, that should probably be mentioned in the FAQ -- that you might
just be able to do a standard, distro-specific install of whatever
represents the org-mode package and emacs will pick it up

  just an observation.


p.s.  also curious about the advice here:


in both cases above, when i asked for "org-version", i didn't get any
"release" info in parentheses.  all i saw was:

  "Org-mode version x.y.z"

which might confuse a reader expecting to see release information.
again, just another observation.
