Org has been part of Emacs for quite a long time already. However, as
you notice, Org shipped with Emacs (8.2.10) is lagging behind current
stable release (8.3.5). As a data point, Org 8.3 was released more than
one year ago, and 8.3.5 differs from 8.2.10 by 2700+ commit. More
importantly, bugs reported on 8.2.10 are unlikely to be fixed.

This patch adds Org current stable release. However, a new release is
going to be shipped on Monday.

Also, this is without the third party "contrib/" directory. We can
provide that also (license is still gpl3+) if needed.
