Hi All!
is the meeting open to all users? I would be very interested in
coming, as I would love to learn a bit more of the program's internals
and how to interact with scheme. I can also help a bit for the
releases (my c++ is a bit rusty, but well...) and I have no fear of
the build system (well, mostly, but I had to compile stuff much more
involved than Lilypond)
Another thing I would like to talk about is using Lilypond in a
professional print environment. In my University we are starting a new
series of printed music books ("Musik aus Schweizer Klöstern") and
Lily will be the tool for engraving all the music (well, "will be" at
90%, you never know what can happen in environments like this, but we
are already making the layout of the next three books in Lily) - so
discussions on long term archival of the music sources, how to setup a
workflow with other people and like are all interesting to me.
