That's what I gathered, too. I assumed Federico follows this list. The

stopped with the question of how to instruct new developers to get the fonts,
and I debated whether to continue it here,
or on the Sourceforge or Rietveld issues.

Hi Karlin

In my opinion these fonts should be provided by linux distros.
I've just read that a new package urw-base35-fonts will replace the obsolete urw-fonts in Fedora 27 (which should be released in November):

Upstream repository is:

I hope that Debian will do the same. I guess this is the package (at the moment only in experimental):

### about LilyDev ###

I've recently created a new LilyDev project, which I called LilyDevOS (based on latest stable Fedora):

This means that in a couple of months LilyDevOS may have this problem fixed.

It's not mentioned in LilyPond doc, as I thought I should wait for feedback from all LilyDev users. It has a number of advantages over LilyDev and for me it's much easier to use, for a number of reasons which I've listed here:

Anyway, if we decide that the setup script in LilyDev should include your proposal, I'll be happy to see a pull request (if you have a github account) or I'll do the change for you. The problem in LilyDev is how to handle the guile1.8 problem: version 5 (master) is based on stretch and does not support guile1.8; version 4 is based on jessie and has guile1.8.
