"this patch", as I understand it being the Rietveld issue in its final state, removed --bigpdf completely.


This here is issue 5201, and the commit message for this issue states:
commit 398c2e17d45bf4d18723e14d52531e4e7d006dea

Yes. It's completely useless with gs 9.22.

At least that's what patch set 2 and patch set 3 claim in their message. It has a scope that was quite exceeding the scope that was agreed on to be sensible for 2.20 on the developer lists.

After some discussions and my "I dend to agree" DAK wrote:

Well, so much for my plan of making the same options work for 2.20 and 2.21.

My answer was to implement the code in patchset #3. After some minor modifications patchset 4 was accepted for master. The final patchset gives the possibility to use the same options for 2.20 and 2.21, I thought that was obvious.

So I don't really see what you mean here. What is your actual proposal/vision for 2.20?

I really thought my "I vote to include this patch in lilypond 2.20" was unequivocal. Cherry-pick 398c2e17d4 for lilypond 2.20.

Use -b together with -dgs-never-embed-fonts

There was an intense discussion about dramatically increased pdf file sizes caused by a patch in ghostscript.

To make it short: I think this patch fixes the problem. Please test.

You will see no effect without a working extractpdfmark package.

one example: notation.pdf is back to 6.875.674 bytes.
