Hi Mike,

You've already burst the 2011's starting blocks and you carries on with
taking a corner at top speed. ;-)
At this rate I can't follow you without finishing in a nest of cuckoos
(or, better, in a cuckoo clock). ;-) ;-)
I like very much your enthusiam, one cannot do great things without it,
but may be you misunderstood my solidarity.
Don't be hurted but I was not planning to edit the site.
My plans with the 371 chorales are "a groß travail" and I don't want add
more that I was fixing for myself.
My plans are as follows:
In a first wave I'll like to release a book in several parts, depending
of the spacing issues, you know, this famous problem which users and
devs are always fighting with and which is not an own Lilypond's issue.
By the way I'm currently wondering whether the duplicate chorales in
Breikopf's edition was a workaround about it. Possibly. Then it is an
well-known problem.
With this release you'll get all the separate files for the chorales
(the duplicates will be pointed out) under a Free Art license (*). Then
you could make anything you want with them and, from my point of view,
it would be a lot easier for students, musicologists... to check and
understand the Margaret's work and to form an opinion if you format my
free work as you did for Margaret Gentree. By the way don't forget she
has edited corrected chorales and also chorales with instrumental parts
which doesn't exist in Breitkopf.

In a second wave I'll like to re-use and reorganize the free sources to
release a book untitled very pompously (but it might change, it's just a
poetic idea):

J.S.Bach Chorales. Studies of anamorphosis.
(In fact, to juxtapose the same themes of chorales).

As you can see there is a "groß travail" to do, but be sure if you have
problems with my files I do everything one possibly can to help you
and facilitate your formatting. It's the meaning of my solidarity.
I hope you are not upset.

(*) I realize I forgot the tagline in my template. I have to add it.
Following a recent discussion on lilypond-fr where Valentin told about
photocopies of sheet music, I think I'll add this in the tagline
(without the capitals):

Copyleft: cette oeuvre est libre, vous pouvez la copier, la PHOTOCOPIER,
la diffuser et la modifier.

Is it possible?
