Answer is in the CG in version 2.13.43.  Look at the lilybuntu page right now.

1.  Everything that we have documented is in the CG.
2.  Asking people about information that we haven't documented, unless
you've made an obvious effort to understand it yourself first, is not
going to win you friends.
3.  Don't start with the hardest / highest-priority issues.  Pick
something tagged with "frogs" to get started on.

You might actually want to wait a week or so, while we do a massive
shake-down of the lilybuntu and compiling instructions.
