Last question! (I hope.)

If I specify an Elpa package as a :subtree, is this a subtree in the
sense of the actual "git subtree" command, or is this just a subtree

After I've added my Github upstream as a remote in elpa, and fetched its
branches locally, am I running this:

git subtree add --prefix packages/gnorb gnorb-remote master --squash

or this:

git checkout -b gnorb-branch gnorb-remote/master
git read-tree --prefix=packages/gnorb -u gnorb-branch

Time spent googling "git subtree" indicated that those were the two
likely possibilities.

Thanks for your patience, and hopefully I can give a little something
back, with a documentation patch for those of us who don't know git all
that well.
