It's not; lilypond is currently GPLv2.

Yeah, I know.  :(   Changing that would require dumping @qq{foo},
which would probably break some translations.
(notably the French <<foo>> thing)

I don't see anything wrong with double-quotes inside
double-quotes... are you proposing that they should be replaced
with single-quotes?  (that said, they should use @qq instead of an
acutal "")

I fixed the emphasis thing.

Already changed in master.

I'm not certain about this.  At the moment, my instinct is to see
how many clueless people we have cluttering up the mailist a few
months after the new website is live.  I think all the "Text
input" links should settle many of those questions.

Learning 1.3.4   has a nice (if I may say so myself) summary of
really important doc sections that get missed, so that should help
as well.

> Introduction > Alternate Input: mention Frescobaldi?

Patches accepted.  I'm not writing more Alternate input stuff.

NB: by default, any programs go under Other.  We only add
individual boxes if it's a really well-featured, stable, and
well-used program.  (maybe Frescobaldi qualifies, but I'd like
some evidence of this first)
