1 Introduction

The Borg assimilate Emacs packages as Git submodules.

Borg is a bare-bones package manager for Emacs packages. It provides only a few essential features and should be combined with other tools such as Magit, epkg, use-package, and auto-compile.

Borg assimilates packages into the ~/.emacs.d repository as Git submodules. An assimilated package is called a drone and a borg-based ~/.emacs.d repository is called a collective.

It is possible to clone a package repository without assimilating it. A cloned package is called a clone.
