thanks for your work.
Let me understand the point. I understand from personal experience that starving can be not that fun. If some of us collect money, then you will be able to eat, and so to implement that features. Then they will become free distribution in lily? Maybe, if lily requires you full time, it's better to think about a (small?) payment in order to use it, or not?
 Just to know your opinion

Of course, you're welcome to garner some fellow sponsor to keep the
cost per person down.



Gee, I don't know... that seems a bit steep. I'm only a student, and
so my finances are not unlimited... note I can get Finale academic
edition for $300, Sibelius academic edition for $215.

[to the list as well.. ]


I can understand that you think it is exorbitant, but you maybe you
can take a look from my perspective. I'd really want Lilypond to be
the standard for music notation, and over the past 8 years I've but
more or less 4 full-time unpaid man-years into this project to make it
so. It's been tremendous fun, but since I started a real job, I ceased
to have a social life.  For that reason, I've just quit that job,
hoping to make a (small) living off LilyPond.

BTW, if anyone wants to pool together money for a feature, I'd
consider not shuffling around the money on paypal, since every time
that happens, Paypal takes out another cut.
