Why is it a black box?  as long as James updates his
lilypond-extra repo, patchy will run the commands in

NB: that said, I don't mean to imply that I expect you to work on
that python code.  You're doing a fantastic job of everything
else; there's no reason why you should be working on this as well.

It's really disappoiting that nobody else is interested in
automatic this task.  :(   finding somebody with moderate git
competency and basic python fluency should not be hard.  :(

If James uses patch from lilypond-extra
then AFAIK patchy is "stupid enough".  It's doing
  git clone --mirror -s %s .git
  git --git-dir=.git config core.bare false
  git checkout origin/master
  git merge --ff-only origin/dev/staging

and then testing the result.  If it fails at any step (be it a git
command,, configure, make, make test, or make doc) then
it bails.
