Package: GNU LilyPond Music Typesetter
System name: lilypond
This package wants to apply for inclusion in the GNU project

LilyPond prints beautiful sheet music. It produces music notation from a 
description file. It excels at typesetting classical music, but you can also 
print pop-songs.

LilyPond input is plain text. So, you can use your favorite text editor to 
enter it, you can put it in mail or embed it in an article like this:

\\key c \\minor r8 c16 b c8 g as c16 b c8 d | g,4

Or you can use it to print music from other programs, using one of the numerous 
input filters.

LilyPond output looks beautiful. The font and the layout algorithms were 
inspired by engraved music, so you can expect that same clear and elegant look 
from your LilyPond output. And if anything is not to your liking, you can tweak 
almost everything.

LilyPond is free software. It is part of the GNU Project. It is licensed under 
GNU General Public License, so you can use, modify and redistribute the program 
with almost no restrictions.

It already exists and you can see it at
