I actually got it installed and tested on my mac, but with two stumbling blocks along the way... (related to the documentation / instructions)

(If this is not the correct email address for this, please forward to the appropriate one, Thanks!)

1. It wasn't clear where to save the "test.ly" file. (when following directions at: http://lilypond.org/web/download/getting-started.html) After a few tries I found that it is the user directory, ie: /hard-drive/users/username/

I guess that you are not that used to using a command window in Mac.
You should simply save it in the directory where you run the command.
I think it is possible to install jedit also on Mac. This could be a
nice option, since the lilypond mode in this text editor includes lots
of builtin help functions and also has buttons to run lilypond.

2. The following text in the test.ly file:

    c4( c)

Since the latest stable version of LilyPond is 2.4, the instructions on
the getting started page have recently been modified to match that
version. If you use version 2.2, you should read the tutorial and users
manual corresponding to that particular version, as Paul already pointed
