I am sure other more experienced programmers will chime in but having
two 'similar' functions

\hideNote
\hideNotes

Is a good idea.

Although we do have

\time

and

\times

but they do very different things.

Also with regard to updating documentation and translations you can

http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.15/Documentation/contributor/translating-the-documentation

Essentially the translations are handled in a separate branch.

Also you cannot just edit snippets like your commit shows, there is a
process for this too that needs to be followed.

If you like, for now I can add a tracker issue for you on this and if
you send me a git format patch I can post this up on Rietveld (our
current method of code verification) for you.

Else you can have a go yourself,
