Yes, seems to have been temporary.  I tried it 3 times yesterday,
but now it's working.

I currently have an awkward problem with virtualbox on Ubuntu
16.04; it keeps on resizing the window one step smaller, until
it's something like 50 pixels high and 300 pixels wide.  This
doesn't happen if I maximize the window.  Very odd, and not unique
to lilydev; I see this when I virtualize ubuntu 16.04, but not
other operating systems.  Very odd.

I've logged in, but it doesn't seem like like git-cl is installed?
The Contributor Guide says that it should be there:

In a similar note, could we get a Terminal icon on the taskbar?
Most people won't know that they can get an xterm by pressing

In a related matter -- and please forgive me if we've discussed
this before -- have we considered distributing an exported OS?  In
the virtualbox GUI, this is called "Export Appliance", but it can
be done in a standard format so that (in theory) non-virtualbox
people can run it.  This would let people "get started" much
faster, and without the intimidation of installing Linux.  It
might also be easier to customize a bunch of things, such as
git-cl, and even putting a git clone of lilypond in there.

I realize that this would increase the filesize; it looks like
1.8 Gb for the exported appliance, compared to 1.1 GB for the

(speaking of disk size, I see that the just-installed size is
3.1G.  What's pushing it so high?  texlive?  I poked around a bit,
but I couldn't find any packages that looks superfulous... maybe
I'm just out of date with how large installed software is these
days.  I must admit that I'm shocked to see that my desktop /usr/
is 8.5G !)
