Claiming that Catalina users do not have an easy way to use LilyPond is your 
opinion. While you have made it clear previously that you personally do not 
find MacPorts to be sufficiently “easy”, I would like to point out that its 
LilyPond port has already been updated to 2.20.0 and is in use.

One benefit of using a package manager is that casual users do not need to 
track when a new version is released, the new version will just appear in their 
list of packages eligible for an update. Unless you are considering adding a 
“check for updates” capability to the .app bundles, that is something that 
cannot be done through static releases.
