I can tell you what worked for me. I think you probably need to have 
cloned org using git for it to work, but I am far from being a git wiz 
so there could be a workaround I don't know about in the case that you 
have it installed by a more conventional method.

First, I saved the patch file to the same directory where I have org 
cloned (for me, that is ~/.emacs.d/straight/repos/org). Then I opened a 
terminal and ran:

git apply --check 0001-Fix-duplicate-logbook-entry-for-repeated-tasks.patch

to do a dry run and make sure I had saved the patch file in the right 
place that "git apply" would run correctly. It returned nothing, which 
is good, so then I ran:

git apply --check 0001-Fix-duplicate-logbook-entry-for-repeated-tasks.patch

to apply the patch. Since I'm using straight.el as my package manager, I 
then opened Emacs and ran "M-x straight-rebuild-all".

Also, thanks to Ihor and Bhavin for your work on this. Prior to applying 
the patch, I was noticing new bizarre behavior relating to recurring 
tasks. I haven't been running the patched org very long yet, but so far, 
so good.

Finally, as a newbie here myself, I have a naïve question of my own: 
Provided the patch proves successful, how/when is it applied to the 
official org repo? Is it up to Ihor (or somebody else) to make a pull 
request, for example?

Best regards,
