The NR (1.2.3 "Displaying Rhythms") states that time signatures "are
printed at the beginning of a piece and whenever the time signature

But if I write

music = {
    \time 3/4
    \time 3/4

the time signature is printed a second time although it doesn't change
(to my understanding)
Rather surprisingly there is no bug report describing this, although it
has been present since the beaming behaviour was changed several
years ago.

a) Is this intended behaviour? And if yes, shouldn't it be documented
I don't think it is intended, so it should be recorded as a bug.
Copying to bug list for bug squad.
I think, David Nalesnik's comment is valid.

So I think the behaviour shouldn't be changed, but the documentation.
I read the opposite in David's comment.  The documentation correctly
says what should happen, and what used to happen prior to around 2010,
but since then the code has behaved incorrectly IMHO.  So the
bug report should record the incorrect behaviour of the code.  As we don't
usually document buggy behaviour, the docs should not be changed,
unless, maybe, to remove the statement either way.

Hm, maybe I've done too much today to see it ;-)
Rereading David's comment after yours, I don't see anymore what he intended to say.

But if you're right and a repeated \time signature shouldn't be displayed by default, would it be then the right way to include David's engraver by default? And do the same for key signatures and clefs?

Or should a fix be tackled at a lower level?
