I'd be willing to help, by:
- Helping typeset songs for Het Nieuwe Liedboek
- Helping bugfix Lilypond and/or entending it (if I can!)

Question: Can anyone help me setup a Q virtual machine that can build
Lilypond from source? I'd rather use a virtual machine, because it's
easier to use across multiple computers (I have a Mac (PowerPC) and a
PC (running Ubuntu), so having my build system as a separate 'system'
would be nice!).

It seems that (parts of) Lily is in C++, which I've been using since
1995. So, I can read and (probably) bugfix in it. I guess I'll have to
learn other languages on the way as well, including .ly (since it's
changed a lot sometimes!)

So, you can probably add me to the list of Frogs. Is there a 'central
place' for new people to 'gather and discuss'?
