I may have mislead you; I do not mix 'n match in a single org file.  A
project file will have various entries as required (meeting notes,
todos, actual code, whatever) but the time logging is completely
separate.  I log all my activities and each entry simply indicates the
particular project I am working on (or whatever, like reading emails
;-).  The logging is in a standalone file, imaginatively called log.org.

Likewise, general GTD stuff also goes into separate files: tasks.org,

So maybe not what you want after all...

I can't help you here.  I'm also a n00b when it comes to git.  I use it
pretty much like you for org related stuff: to keep various systems in
