Greetings everybody,
I just wanted to let you know that Janus Nowacki, one of the founders
of the TeX Gyre font suite that is used by default in LilyPond, has
recently died:
And his personal website (in Polish):

The TeX Gyre font project was started in 2006 to provide high-quality,
free-licensed replacements for existing URW fonts:

Its adoption in LilyPond was discussed from 2008 onwards, but took
more than seven years to finally be committed. (TeX Gyre Schola has
many advantages, less bugs and excellent support for non-Western glyph
sets such as Cyrillic and Hebrew.)
