yes :)

That's set in my .profile or .bashrc - cannot remember off hand -
LilyDev has this set and I know I use echo $LILYPOND_GIT it reports
back /home/james/lilypond-git. The python scripts also 'complain' if
you don't have it set, they check and report back, so again I know
from that perspective it all works.

Don't waste too much of your own time David, I just wanted to make
sure that running two commands in cron didn't need some special
'qualifier' or that I should use ';' instead of '&&' (although i know
the difference).

I'll try to figure it out.
