Comment #9 on issue 694 by percival.music.ca: Enhancement: arrowed heads
for microtone accidentals
What's not clear...
- there's some patch(s), but it's not clear if it applies to current git,
or is waiting for revision from the author, or waiting for review.
- lilypond already supports arbitrary fractional tones. Notation 1.1.1
Non-Western note names and accidentals, in the 2.13 docs. So what's
missing? Just the graphical pointed arrow?
- to reduce confusion from developers and bug squad people, we only
want "item" per issue. This one claims to be about documentation, but the
original reporter (Valentin) didn't know about our
arbitrary-fraction-microtones, and there's this patch, and now you're
talking about "code solution first"...
We need somebody who cares about microtonal support (you?) to divide this
- if anything is wrong with our fundamental support for arbitrary
fractional microtones, make a minimal bug report and send it to
bug-lilypond. The Bug Squad should add a SEPARATE issue for that one.
- if the fundamental definitions of microtones are fine, but you want a
different display mechanism (which is probably true; the Turkish notation
doesn't look familiar to me), then make a minimal bug report and send it to
bug-lilypond. The bug squad should add a separate issue for that graphical
- if the patch is still good, then send it to lilypond-devel, and if
nobody replies, the patch manager will add a separate issue blah blah.
- if there's anything else, then send a separate minimal bug report, and
Finally, close this issue because it's way too confusing for me. Yes, I
may be an idiot, but given that it's an old issue and nobody else has
looked into it, I think you need to deal with the idiot. I know this makes
extra administrative work (maybe 30 minutes in total?) for people who care
about microtonal stuff, but IMHO that's the best chance to move forward
