Maybe this should be added to the docs somewhere?
Maybe you should learn to read the docs?  It's already in there.
As Chip didn't find it: Maybe someone should fix the docs?

1.  Hmm, I want to do something special.  I'd better look in the

2.  Hmm, I want to print something special in the titles (i.e. the
date and version number).  I'd better look in Titles.

3.  Great gallumphing gargantum giraffes!  The VERY FIRST MAOING
ITEM is "adding the current date to a score".  Well, clearly those
lilypond documentation people are utterly incompetent.

I will admit that "outputting the version number" appears in the
Text list, rather than the titles.  In fact, both snippets should
appear in both Text and Titles, but currently they're only in one
list.  "Somebody" should fix this.

Now, remember all those times I asked for volunteers for LSR, and
all those times that you all said "yeah, it would be nice if
somebody did that", and deleted those emails?  Yeah, that's what
I'm talking about.

The current person responsible for LSR also happens to be the most
active patch-reviewer.  Do you *really* want me to ask him to stop
working on patches (i.e. new features, bug fixes, etc) and waste
his time playing web-2.0 games that anybody with TWO BLOODY WEEKS

As I was saying yesterday, anything can be done if there's enough
interest.  The readers of lilypond-user have spoken (by not
volunteering for this job) -- there is not sufficient interest in
having better-organized snippets.

Frankly, organizing snippets is one of the easiest, most fun ways
to get involved.  That was actually my first job in this project,
and I'm utterly flabbergasted (and royally pissed) that nobody is
interested in doing it.

I volunteered to help with this a while back but I never got word that I'd been made an editor. I'll be glad to try to fix this but I'm not completely sure I understand the problem. Let me dig in the CG and the code a bit and see if I can figure out how to make them appear in both lists.
