Lilypond is now the only package (Gnucash has been ported to and Requires 
Guile-2) that requires
Guile < 2.0. I have built Lilypond-2.19.3 with Guile-1.8.
That said, Guile-1.8 gets more and more difficult to build and I am afraid it's 
going to be dropped
from our next Distribution release and as a result Lilypond will not be in the 
next release by the
end of 2014 unless it will build and work with Guile-2.
Is there a time-line for Lilypond with Guile-2? Will it be before November 2014?
If not I am not going spend my time to put Lilypond-2.19.x into Cauldron (the 
Mageia development

There is no timeline, but an entry for GSoC at http://www.gnu.org/software/soc-projects/ideas-2014.html#lilypond to hopefully attract a paid developer to work on this. It's possible that there would be some development version ready by November, but unlikely that it would be stable release quality (my own assessment).
