Another ten days has passed…

I guess I don't understand how the Lilypond development process works. I keep 
hearing we need people to jump in and learn how to develop/improve Lilypond. I 
took the initiative, found an issue I thought I could tackle, and offered a 
solution that appears to work with no unintended side-effects. I've now asked 
twice whether I should move towards a submittable patch, but have received no 
response in several weeks.

I will almost certainly require some hand-holding through the git process (n.b. 
I've already got LilyDev set up and running on my machine), which is one of the 
reasons I chose such a small bug as my first project. I guess I'll just push 
forward and try to get a patch submitted on my own, and come back to the list 
with any obstacles I hit during the git-ting process.

I realize everybody's doing all of this essentially in their spare time… but 
perhaps there's a way that people like me — who are trying to get themselves up 
to speed so that they can contribute more on the development side — could be 
guided/mentored a little more? Otherwise it's a little discouraging, and thus 
probably not the *best* plan towards increasing the developer pool.
