OK, I think I've cracked the problem of patches with Thunderbird. The
problem is that Thunderbird takes .patch files to be of mime-type
text/x-diff. Renaming the file to end in .txt changes its opinion of
the file type and allows the patch to be in base64 encoding.


You're right.  This patch has Unix line endings and applies cleanly
as received.  Congratulations!

This probably _is_ something which should be in the docs as it's not
something you would imagine would be a solution.

Could you let me have a suitable form of words?  I suggest a new
section in the CG - 1.3.3 Mailing a patch.

As for the patch: this particular part of the contemporary music docs ('Further reading') is something it would be great for other people to pitch in on. I've split the section into two: on the one hand books and articles (including webpages) that are useful; on the other, scores and musical extracts (again, possibly including online examples) that are
interesting with respect to learning about contemporary notation.

This information is undeniably useful, but I'm not sure it should
be part of the *LilyPond* Notation Reference.  We haven't included
external references like this elsewhere, yet the Stone and Read books
are very general and useful to all kinds of musical notation.

I'll wait for comment from Graham (and others) before pushing this.
