Assimilate Emacs packages as Git submodules Borg is a bare-bones package manager for Emacs packages. It provides only a few essential features and should be combined with other tools such as Magit, epkg, use-package, and auto-compile. Borg assimilates packages into the ~/.emacs.d repository as Git submodules. An assimilated package is called a drone and a borg-based ~/.emacs.d repository is called a collective. For more information see the announcement and the manual.
