Thanks a lot for the detailed workflow description.

I don't have the bzr-tiplog plugin installed (I don't know how to
install it), and just by reading the workflow I don't feel really
confortable in trying it...

Here is the one I used for the sync this morning:

~$ cd install/git/
~$ git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/emacs.git
~$ cd emacs
~$ git checkout emacs-24
~$ cd ~/install/git/org-mode/
~$ git checkout maint [the branch in sync with Emacs]
~$ cp [files from Emacs] [to files from Org]
~$ git diff > ~/emacs-sync.diff
~$ [review the diff and apply it to the maint branch]
~$ git checkout hotfix
~$ git merge maint [merge changes from Emacs]
~$ [release new Org (minor) version]
~$ git checkout maint
~$ git merge hotfix
~$ copy files from Org to Emacs (git)
~$ git diff [in Emacs git, to get the diff]
~$ review the patch and apply it to bzr emacs-24 if correct

Most of this can be automated with a few scripts, and I 
try to avoid bzr, because using Magit for git diff and other 
operations is really handy.
