Hi Kieren,

my talk would be probably of some interest for you. From the description:
"This talk discusses the prerequisites needed to write LilyPond
extensions. A detailed, commented code example
will be used to demonstrate how to retrieve details of LilyPond’s
internals, how to modify them as necessary for
the task at hand, and how to overcome obstacles, if possible. Finally,
some thoughts will be shared on how to
improve and simplify the coding of extensions in general. Languages:
German and English."

Alas, it will be in german, so I can't imagine how helpful it would be for you.
Werner will likely upload the (german) script. And probably I could be
persuaded to make an english version as well, although this would take
some time.
Though, I don't trust my spoken english enough to do the talk in english.
This would hold for your "bootcamp" as well.

Apart from the problem finding a slot for it, as Urs already
mentioned, such a meeting would be a great place for it. Maybe we can
arrange something more or less ad hoc once we meet there.

Generally I'd be interested where you think the obstacles guile <->
LilyPond are.
I frequently fail to really understand it.
You may have noticed
where Daniel replies to my question.
The main point could probably summarized as "confusing doc"

Where do _you_ think are the problems?
