[O] Only on my computer, Invalid function: org-with-silent-modifications

Good afternoon,

Just upgraded to 8.2.7 and was surprised to get the
"org-with-silent-modifications" error. Here is what happened.

The first time that I set up my Emacs libraries, using Cask, which
uses the Emacs package manager, it install org2blog which has org
8.2.6 as a dependency. Then, Cask installed org-plus-contrib 8.2.6 and
life went on. Then I can cask update to get the 8.2.7 release (Cask
just pulls from the org repo).

Started up Emacs and got that aforementioned error. The issue seemed
to revolve around load-path or
load-order, and I didn't understand any further than that. It was very
strange because my whole approach
had been to automate everything so it would "just work".

Poking around, I eventually saw that org2blog depends on "org" (yes
now I admit that I didn't know this when
at first, but that is not relevant here I believe). That just didn't
look right to have both orgs in there, so I deleted plain old "org"
and commented out the org2blog load. Now Emacs works again.

The issue seems to be that org-plus-contrib doesn't satisfy "org" from
a package manager perspective.

This surprised me because the former is a superset.

My next step now is to figure out what to do from a package
perspective, because I would like to keep
org2blog in there.

Anyone else encountered this and want to share the solution?

I'm going to think about this some more and see.

Kind regards,
