Lines 360, 381, 384.  Documentation/lilypond-texi2html.init
Works for contributor; I didn't bother checking the others.  From
a clean source tree.

I only use texi2html 1.82.

I think you mean "init file"?

*throws up hands*

ok.  What should I have stopped doing?  Not bothered about the fix
for lilypond on osx 10.6 ?  Ignored the missing lilypad.exe in
windows?  Stop working on the waf build?  Not bother about the
lower-case html names thing that's bugging Jan ?

You're reluctant to do lilypond stuff because of phd issues?  I'm
spending about half my waking hours working on lilypond -- and I'm
already an official phd student.

I'm willing to do all the crap jobs that nobody else wants to
touch -- not without complaining, but I'll *do* them -- but please
understand that I could spend literally 50 hours a week for the
rest of the year trying to catch up.  But even *I'm* not willing
abuse my supervisor's good-will that much.  So I constantly try to
balance the importance and freshness-in-my-mind of all tasks.

As it happens, I wasn't the original person to write the texi2html
file.  I don't understand how it works.  For the new website, I
found that if I did X, Y, and Z, it produced the output I wanted.
In my mind, that moved it from "urgent" to "important"... which
means that I won't touch it for another 4 months or so.

(should we start casting dirty looks at Reinhold and Patrick?
They were the people who wrote the original one, so they're in the
best position to remove the unneeded code from the new one... but
again, I don't believe in blaming / making demands  on people
because they helped out in the past)

Great!  You know more than me.  Want to take it over?

I'm sorry, I didn't want to snap at you.  But I think everybody
has seriously underestimated both the amount, and importance, of
these basic "maintenance" tasks.
