Worg is loosely realated to orgmode.org. We link back and forth, but
stuff committed to Worg will always show up below orgmode.org/worg/.

It's not a wiki though. We push to a common repo, and that repo is
pulled (I think once an hour) and then exported on (or to??) the server
by emacs. That's how the site is kept up to date.

There are no CamelCase links in Org-mode for a reason. But there is
automatic link and page creation. I have no problem with this syntax

   [[file:../relative/path.org][Look here]]


You can create the page simply by clicking on the (file) link or
pressing `C-c C-o' while on it.

You go back to the link with `C-x &' later on.

And, automatic link creation can be done the other way round in

If you visit an interesting place (a web page, email, man page...) you
store a link to that location, whenever you either `remember' something,
or through `C-c L', or click your org-remember bookmark, org-store-link
bookmark, org-open-source bookmark....

In the `C-c L' case you may insert the link later on by pressing `C-c
C-l'. In case you clicked a `store-link' bookmark, simple yanking is

Hm - `C-c L' and remember are even more usefull. For emacs users _very_
usefull, since you may store usefull links to a place _inside_ a source
file to a file _inside_ a certain projects documentation/todo-file.

But back to the wiki thing: why not use a WIKI when you need one ????

Org-mode is ready to generate online content, yes, but online content is
not ready to cope with full fledged org files (should be feasable, but
no one did it).
