Hi Daniel,

we don't have a formal mentorship program. This was intended but AFAICS
this never really worked out. So it seems the CG should be cleaned up in
this respect. The "mentoring" you'll receive is from this mailing list.

If you have reached the state where you can build LilyPond and create
some improvement you're ready to start, I think.

What you *can* do is ask on this list whether your perception of a
possible patch is viable (actually that's what you just did). And if
noone objects you should upload a patch for review - and that's what you
should concentrate on next in the CG.

You will need a SourceForge account and should communicate your user
name, so someone can add you to the issue tracker project. This is
needed for successfully going through the upload process with git-cl.

If your patch is good and reaches (maybe after some iterations) the
"push" status you will have to ask someone (again, here on this list) to
push the patch on your behalf. After a number of successful patches you
can ask for getting push access on the LilyPond repository itself.
