Well, I consider it a `problem' if fixes get completely overwritten by
non-fixed files...

But makelsr gets called quite frequently (e.g. Jul 29th, Jul 20th, and
you did it on Jul 16th)...

Oh, wait.  It seems that `makelsr' is a misnomer.  The script actually
takes care only of directories full of lilypond snippets, but it is
not directly related to the LSR on the Italian host, right?  You
essentially use it to transfer snippets from your local (translation
or whatever) git branch into the trunk.

And I've just remembered that the `snippets/new' directory refers to
`new features' in lilypond, not to `new files'.

My conclusion is that it is quite safe to directly edit files in the
`snippets' directory.  Relieved :-)
