Thanks - does anybody else has any ideas on how I can get org into info?
M-x info-display-manual RET ~/src/org-mode/doc/org RET

This definitely works - thanks. But is there a way of adding this permanentely, so that I can use
the menu entry in the org menu to see the info file?

The following works for me (your mileage may vary)

  ;; info paths
  (add-to-list 'Info-default-directory-list

For my set up (see below) I have tried Eric's suggestion, except "/home/Charlie/elisp/org-mode/doc/"

I have also tried (expand-file-name "~/elisp/org-mode/doc/") (I found this in the FAQ)

"C-h v Info-default-directory-list" shows that "/home/Charlie/elisp/org-mode/doc" loads before all other info directories.

Info at the command line and "C-h i" from Emacs still bring up the manual for 7.9.1 even though the 7.9.2 org.doc has been downloaded.
. . . . . . . . . . . .
After writing the above I went back to the FAQ and added the following to my ~/.bash_profile


It works for info from the command line. As a matter of fact the new org info is at the beginning of the info contents. However emacs C-h i only bring up the Org info, even though "C-h v Info-default-directory-list" shows that all info directories are loaded.

Set up:
Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Cygwin 1.7.17-1
GNU Emacs 24.2.1(i686-pc-cygwin, GTK+ Version 2.24.11) of 2012-08-27 on fiona
Org-mode version 7.9.2 (release_7.9.2-664-gb1f369 @ /home/Charlie/elisp/org-mode/lisp/)
