\score{ \notes {
\time 6/8
\repeat volta 2 {
bar1
bar2
bar3
bar4
bar5
bar6
}
\alternate {
{ bar7 }
{ bar8 }
}
\bar "\."
}}

There's an example that's almost exactly like this in the user manual (under
"repeat syntax").  What part of that page was hard to understand?  We're trying
to improve the manual, so we'd be greatful for any hints about what causes
confusion.
