Hi there,

Sorry for not responding earlier.  Gmail put your message into the SPAM box.

You don't need anyone's permission to distribute LilyPond, but I am
totally fine with it anyway.

There are just a couple of caveats. Due complicated technical issues
we don't have a native version that works on intel MacOS 10.5
reliably.  There is a powerpc version, and an intel version which only
works for 10.4.

Also, there is the question whether you should include the 2.11 series
(development) or 2.10 (stable) version, and if you want to include the
documentation (it's available as .tar.bz2 file from our website).  I
think the 2.11 release is stable enough to include, but please do give
a heads-up so you don't happen to distribute that one release that
happened to be broken.

We typically have multiple releases for 2.11 per month, so anything
you include will be a bit stale by the time the magazine comes out. It
might be helpful to point your readers to our website.
