Yes, of course, because these committishes are known by everybody who
fetches the web/master branch of

Before starting the docs translation, it would be nice from you to fix
this and update Spanish translation.  The German pages also
need an update.

There are much technical details about the tutorial and user manual
translation.  Before this, I recommend you to read parts of Texinfo and
Git documentation, not to know every technical detail, but have an
overview of what's going on.

If you want to get started right now, here's a quickstart guide.

1) Fetch the LilyPond sources like the web site sources: do this in
another directory, replace web/master with master and myweb with

2) At top of the source directory, do


or (if you want to install your self-compiled LilyPond locally):

./ --prefix=$HOME

If you want to compile LilyPond -- which is almost required to build the
docs, but is not required to do translation only -- fix all dependencies
and rerun ./configure (with the same options as for autogen).
Otherwise, go to the next step.

3) cd into Documentation and run:

make ISOLANG=es new-lang

4) add a language definition for Spanish in buildscripts/

5) Copy tutorial.itely from Documentation/user to Documentation/es/user,
put immediately the right committish in it and start translating this
file, following instructions from

I'll give further instructions for lilypond.tely and

Good luck
