I'm getting a bizarre problem with 2.20. I did my updates to VERSION, news,
etc. and ran a make to check all was OK.  It failed being unable to find
Documentation/pt/. If I ls in a terminal, the directory is not shown. If I look with Nautilus it's there. I know it's been deleted in master, but not
in stable/2.20 and I really can't see why it should be there in the file
viewer but not via terminal.

Anyone any idea??

I have no problems to see and to access it:

address@hidden ~/lilypond-git (master)$ git checkout remotes/origin/stable/2.20
Checking out files: 100% (886/886), done.
Note: checking out 'remotes/origin/stable/2.20'.

You are in 'detached HEAD' state. You can look around, make experimental
changes and commit them, and you can discard any commits you make in this
state without impacting any branches by performing another checkout.

If you want to create a new branch to retain commits you create, you may
do so (now or later) by using -b with the checkout command again. Example:

 git checkout -b <new-branch-name>

HEAD is now at ab3d2f7a26 Bump version
address@hidden ~/lilypond-git ((ab3d2f7a26...))$ cd Documentation/pt/
address@hidden ~/lilypond-git/Documentation/pt ((ab3d2f7a26...))$ ls
GNUmakefile macros.itexi search-box.ihtml translations.itexi web web.texi

Sorry to be of not more help,

It was of help. It made me look harder and I found that it was actually reporting that build/Documentation/pt/ was missing. Which it is. The Documentation/pt/ directory is definitely missing from master but is present in stable/2.20. I guess that someone has deleted references to it and so it's not getting copied into the build tree? How do we find out which commit deleted the directory in git?
