Umm, John has approximately 3 times as many commits to his name as
you do.  Granted, many of them are from gitstats being counting
"committed by" intead of "author", so translation meisters get
double the number of commits.  But still, he did a ton of work on
the build system, documentation, set up the whole translations
system, etc., and certainly knows more than me about the
programming side of lilypond as well.  He's just been a bit
inactive for the past few years while doing a phd in mathematics
in Italy.

Which just serves to underline the problem with the CG.  When the
inaccuracies in the CG mislead extremely experienced lilypond
developers, there's clearly a problem.  Thankfully John will
undoubtedly fix it... but this morning we also saw problems with
another person looking at the git part of the CG, so there's still
plenty of work to do.
