Re: LSR status?

That's why I suggested that we encourage people to download the
snippet database.  It comes as a tarball of the snippets (each saved
in a different file; I assume just like input/*/*.ly ). It should be just as
easy to search that.

We could even make semi-official snippet collections -- instead of
simply having nightly tarballs, we could have occasional
"snippet releases". Or just include a nightly tarball with each lilypond

It just seems that LSR is a nicer way to maintain "tips and tricks" than
the current input/test/ . AFAIK, nobody's really maintaining input/test/
(I should probably be, but I haven't looked at it in ages), and we
certainly don't get contributions from non-CVS committers.  I believe
that LSR _does_ get user contributions.  And it's certainly easier for
a user to add stuff to LSR than it is to get it into input/test/ .

If we could eliminate input/test/ while maintaining a bunch of greppable
snippets, would you be in favor?

I would very much appreciate if this collection of examples was
included in the distribution. When looking for solutions to different
LilyPond questions, I very often start by doing
grep xxx input/*/*.ly
i.e. I do a search in all the Tips&Tricks and Regression Tests input
files. I certainly know about the search facilities in LSR, but I
still prefer using old-fashioned 'grep'.
Alternately, we could just remove input/test and advertise LSR more -- if a user wants to download some snippets, they can do that on their own, but
we don't distribute "tips and tricks" with the main docs.
