So, first, the main question: is there interest in combining the existing with some of the features and approaches of LilyPad? If there is interest, I'd be happy to take the reins on OS X GUI development--it's what I know best. If somebody else is already has been my work, but I don't mind if someone else steps to continue improveming and developing it. However, I do oppose to Objective-C as development language. We already have too many languages (C++, Python, Scheme and bits of C)- and I see a maintenance problem with adding another one. The wrapper for has been written in Python, which is fortunately pretty simple to learn and use.

doing this actively, I'd be happy to alternatively have a smaller, supporting role.

If so, the next question: what logistically has to happen to get that code in there and to get me involved in the process? I know nothing about the development standards, build system, source tree, etc., so I'd love some guidance.

The easiest would be to check out the installers/macos/ module from savannah CVS. In the LilyPad subdirectory, you'll find a pyobjc application, which you can build with

  python setup

set LILYPOND_DEBUG_APPDIR=/Applications/ , and you will be able to run dist/

oh, I suspect that you might have to install pyobjc ( to make it work.
