## Reading the LM

Hello,
Since the new LM looks so good, I've decided to take another attempt
at learning (and regularly using) lilypond for my scores.
Two questions:
1. I'm making errata as I go (using version 2.13.2).  Yahoo isn't
letting me attach files for some reason, so here's an example:

1.1 Background
6th paragraph
"so nitpicking about typographical details may seem academical."
to
"so nitpicking typographical details may seem academic."

It's not as verbose as the example given on the website for changes to
documentation.  But is this format clear? Also, should I just post
everything on the list when I'm done, or send it to someone directly?

2.  In 2.2.6, partial measures and gracenotes are covered.  In the previous
chapter, autobeaming is covered.  Put them all together and, wham!
A partial measure starting with a gracenote turns off autobeaming, even
if it's explicitly turned on:

\relative c' {
\key c \minor
\partial 8
\grace ais8
b8
\autoBeamOn
c d ees f g aes bes c
}

I saw one archived message about this, but no replies, and I couldn't
find it listed as a bug on the google code page.  Should this be added
to the list of bugs, or am I overlooking something?

Thanks, and looking forward to getting deeper into using Lilypond,
-Jonathan
