Authored several FAQs based on the suggestions of Bernt Hanser, Jambunathan K, and Noorul Islam K M on the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list. These FAQs address how to use the included org-mode distribution without compiling, how to update to new versions of org-mode, and how to fix documentation and customization annoyances.
In terminal emacs, Info-directory-list automatically points to Info-default-directory-list, so the expected behavior occurs. But in Aquamacs (and I suspect other windowed emacsen), calling info only shows the Org manual and no others. I believe this is because Info-directory list is nil but not void. The (unless ... ) call always returns nil, so Info-directory-list ends up containing only "~/.emacs.d/src/org/doc". By unwrapping the variable definition, we *unconditionally* copy Info-default-directory-list to Info-directory-list, which may not be desirable. I do not know what it was wrapped in the first place, so this may not be the best solution, but the change produces the expected effect on my system. GNU Emacs 188.8.131.52 (i386-apple-darwin9.8.0, NS apple-appkit-949.54) of 2010-08-18 on braeburn.aquamacs.org - Aquamacs Distribution 2.1 Org-mode version 7.4 (release_7.4.127.gec97)
