Well, I would need it if I actually wanted anything from org-contrib,
but I really have to check whether this is still the case.

Is that necessary?  Can't I just use the package manager to update Org
along with any other packages?  Or does the issue about not visiting and
.org file before installing via the package manager apply to updates

Interesting, although I would generally want at least some version of
Org even if a more recent version is installed but somehow broken.
