No - I've no idea, TBH.  My .iso is dated 12 March 2011.

the iso from lilynet is named ubuntu-lilydev-remix-1.1.iso
so if yours is called something else, I'd be suspicious.

Yes - I've got ubuntu-10.10-desktop-i386.iso

Done.  It put the code in lilypond-git/git-cl

err, ok.  I recommend that you move that directory somewhere else
-- your main home directory would be fine.

Dragged and dropped with the File Browser.

I did this:

address@hidden:/bin$ sudo ln -s $HOME/lilypond-git/

sudo isn't needed.  That won't do anything because you don't have
a file called "" in lilypond-git.

OK. When I was in the bin directory, it gave me a permission denied without the sudo. I assumed that the was a directory, and I did have one of those in lilypond-git.

Move the git-cl directory to the main home dir, then do
 cd bin

Strictly, this doesn't work on my system. I have to do a few cd .. commands before bin is there.

 sudo rm
 ln -s $HOME/git-cl/git-cl

I get permission denied.  Sudo fixes that.

and then try:
you should get a "git cl help" message at this point.

Yup :-).  Is the CG in error - it says git cl, not git-cl?

The CG now says:

"If you added your patch to master, then:

git pull -r
git cl upload origin/master"
TBH, I don't know whether I did or not. Should I follow these instructions exactly?
