```
```Lilypond Odd Jobs
-----------------
```
```
Thank you Graham.

```
```- create example for automatic accidental examples that demonstrates
everything
```
```
OK, I'll take this one.

```
```- special markup command examples (note head styles, rotation, etc:
complicated stuff to show off some possibilities).  Maybe as LSR instead
of manual.
```
```
To everyone who would like to take it: please check
http://lsr.dsi.unimi.it/LSR/Search?q=%5Cmarkup
first, and improve existing snippets if necessary
(for example check if they are located in the relevant category).

```
```- document (manual or LSR) adding command-line arguments to lilypond scores:
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/lilypond-user/2006-10/msg00271.html
```
```
```
```- document (manual or LSR) adding arguments to \include:
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/lilypond-user/2006-12/msg00642.html
```
```
```
```- document (manual or LSR) first/last page header commands:
```
```
```
```- document (manual or LSR) multiple tags:
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/lilypond-user/2007-01/msg00635.html
```
```
```
```- prettify the main "snippets" page of the docs.
input/lsr/LSR.ly
http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.11/input/lsr/collated-files
```
```
```
```GENERAL EDITING / JANITORIAL:
- check manual for current correctness (does it make sense, is the info
up-to-date, etc)
```
```
Absolutely! This is a (crucial) task everyone can do!

```
```- verify anything in the "bugs" sections
- standardize # signs
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/lilypond-devel/2006-10/msg00180.html
```
```
```
```- avoid future tense
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/lilypond-devel/2006-01/msg00076.html
```
```
[OMG... I think I've used it many times in the French translation... :-( ]

```
```ADVANCED
- go through ly/music-functions-init.ly and add a doc string to every
function listed.
- Some type of doc that outlined the lexical construction of Lilypond
```
```
This seems to be a quite complete list.
Graham: Since you haven't pasted the link (yet) in this thread, let me
do it for you:

Everyone:
Anyone can add new snippets to the LSR, but it requires special rights
to modify existing snippets. In such a case, please send me your
corrected snippet,
or if you prefer, assuming the snippet you corrected was

Writing music with LilyPond

copy it and post it as a new snippet, entitled:

Writing music with LilyPond [corrected]

I check for new snippets everyday, so the first one will soon be
replaced with yours.

Suggesting concrete Documentation improvements is very easy, and this
