Hi Joseph,

welcome to the LilyPond community. It is great to see someone volunteering for 
such a task.

It is a good idea to ask for a mentor, although that person would probably be 
mostly a mediator between you and the developers.

Personally I don't think I could be that mentor but I wanted to give you 
immediate feedback, in case too many devs are in holiday mode.

It may be interesting for you that there are several current plans and ideas 
around regarding import and export to various formats.

Best wishes
