Hi list,

I am watching the guile-2-threads grow and really do appreciate that! Many thanks to Antonio, Harm, David, Federico, et al for allyour efforts on this!

There is a another question I have in mind: What would it mean to create LilyDev as a container-based-solution? On my laptop and my working machine I regularly use LXC to start Apache or Tomcat inside a container for testing purposes. And if I have to test something I often do that inside a container (

Is there a script, which prepares an ubuntu installation for lilydev (beside apt-get build-dep lilypond) and gub? That way one can set up a container, run the setup-script (prob. with options to select either guile 1.8 or 2.0.12/13). The lilydev-solution is just an iso to download. But if you want to test with different guile-versions, you have to provide a vm for each one of them. Containers are much lighter and smaller and use less cpu and take the memory they need - not a fixed amount in the vm-settings.

Summary: Which steps/tasks need to be performed by a setup script to prepare a ubuntu-based installation for lilypond-development and gub (using the local lilypond-sources)? I say ubuntu-based as lilydev is based on it. But other distributions might as well work.

Currently it seems I'm the only one being able to test Antonio's patches.

This is not exactly optimal.
Having a LilyDev with guile 2.0.12/13 may help.

I for one would be more likely to help with testing if there were a LilyDev with guile 2.0.12/13

Thanks Antonio, Harm, David, Federico, et al, for your work on this.
