We used to have a lilypond/gdp branch, but that was awkward for
some reason (I can't remember the specifics right now, though).
But that wouldn't help in this case, where Documentation/user/*
was modified in a way which doesn't work with GUB.  I've simply
reverted that commit, and am now working on the docs again.

Keeping everything on the main branch also simplifies things
for the doc helpers; most of us know nothing about git and
have no desire to mess around with branches.
