Thanks for the list of candidates, I processed around half of it for
now (+ some dependencies as mentioned below).
All commits that I think should be "picked" are also readily available
in my branch origin/dev/hahnjo/stable-2.20. Let me know if those are ok
and I can easily push to stable/2.20.

I wouldn't pick these three: It's for better debuggability and
additionally adds translatable messages.

I think that's a new feature, should not be picked IMO.

> 3bd7050543 Issue 5468: Various fixes

I've picked 385ed0864c (" Formatted to blend with
other lilypond Python scripts") first to ease cherry-picking.

> 0deb785f64 Update texinfo.tex from Texinfo git master branch

not sure about this one...

> cb1963c46a Web: update online editors section.

not sure, has quite some changes in lily/ and scm/

> ed86e71eb0 Use "simple strings" rather than #"hash-prefixed Scheme strings"

not sure: It's a very large commit, mostly in Documentation/ and
input/, but also in ly/...

> 3aeb41c27f Command line help: -o option takes either FILE or FOLDER as arg.

Picked 92d7477bf7 (" Fix typo (`-O size', not `-O speed')" and
139f0ce98d (" Fix `--help' output.") first and then this one.

looks small enough to take, but doesn't apply cleanly due to other

hmm, the last commit claims it's "much easier to follow", but I'm not
sure it's actually fixing an issue?

all picked.

It says "fix erroneous shape of pralldown/prallup" in the commit
description, not sure if we want to pick this...

> 56942ccc5f Issue 5489/2: rename trilelement → trillelement

Sounds like a typo fix that potentially breaks code that worked in
earlier unstable releases?

AFAICS that's a new feature, not picked.

This mentions commits 78225bc1b3 ("Chord names clean-up [...]") and
ed86e71eb0 ("Use "simple strings" rather than #"hash-prefixed Scheme
strings""), see above.

Do we need these in stable/2.20?

all picked. The fixed commit mentioned in the last one is actually from
above, so I think we should take both (or none)

> 9c0e1363ac Issue #5506: Add tremolo stem support to \cueDuring

Looks like a small new "feature", not picked for now.

> 9d9dc55729 Issue 5501: Avoid failed assertion in stem tremolo code
> 3008803555 Doc: NR added @knownissue re midi block with polymetric notation

both picked.

> db818c1220 ly: Adding

looks like a new feature?

> f4e30857e1 Doc: Usage - Better description of -dcrop in Usage chapter 1.2

I would propose to pick the following commits (in that order):
a6553e3cde Issue 5451: running.itely: Revise documentation of basic command 
line options
03f91e47a2 Issue 5452: running.itely: Revise documentation of -d command line 
f3f2b9d3d1 running.itely: Minor fixes for command line option documentation.
f4e30857e1 Doc: Usage - Better description of -dcrop in Usage chapter 1.2

(The first resulted in conflicts because the branch has c7c6c948c9
which was not in master...)

not if we should pick this commit or just run makelsr on the branch?

both picked.

> ff348fa75a Issue 5486/1: add very short/Henze fermata commands

new feature, see above (commit 1284c743b0)

> a33f922e0f Pondings: fixed URL for Ben Lemon
> bc46cc1fef Documentation: elaborate NR `custom percussion’ section

both picked.

I tend to say that these two should be picked as well, but not really
sure because I don't know the context...

not relevant unless we pick 464cf0d811, see above.

not relevant unless we pick db818c1220, see above.

see previous commit

> 2513916bed Web: 'Productions' - introduction.itexi additions and corrections

picked 844e8cda13 ("Web: update Productions list (Issue #5445)") first
to avoid conflicts.

So much for now. The result of all "picked" commits (also in branch
origin/dev/hahnjo/stable-2.20) passes a full build, check and doc.
