Dear fellow Bug Squad members,

unfortunately I can’t access my sourceforge account right now. Could anyone please open tracker issues for this (I think three separate ones would be in order)?

(2) In line 181 of midi2ly.py, the authors talk about how the 7th of a
minor scale should be raised, but this is not notated. The real issue
is that there are two types of minor scale involved, the harmonic
minor (1 2 b3 4 5 b6 7) and the natural minor (1 2 b3 4 5 b6 b7). The
reason that "C# is not put in the key signature of D minor" is that
the minor scale is the natural minor, not the harmonic minor.

I’d rather say that all these musicotheoretical musings don’t belong there at all. Instead one could just say:
# induce correct spelling of 7th scale degree in minor keys

(3) At line 677, there's a cryptic comment

# urg, this will barf at meter changes

i.e. an enhancement request to fix this
