Thanks for the feedback.  I've changed it and attached an updated copy of
the file.

The relevant paragraph has become:

One of the real challenges when getting started on extending or
patching LilyPond is trying to find where the relevant program lines
are found. With nearly 3000 files in the source distribution, a listing
of the entire file tree would take more than 50 pages.  There is a file
ROADMAP that lists the directory structure and the kind of files that
are in each folder.  However, it's difficult to know exactly where the
program lines you want are.

I hope this is better.
