I think all you have to do is to install 2.12 from the download page, and
have a different working directory for the 2.13 source.  And then you
can follow the instructions in the file HACKING that exists in the top
LilyPond source directory.

Of course, those instructions won't work on Windows, but IIRC you have Linux

But you can't update any snippets to 2.12 and put them on LSR until LSR is
moved to 2.12.  But if you just keep the updated, checked, and approved
snippets in a directory, we can upload the changes later, I think.

For the time being, you don't make changes to the 2.12 docs.  2.12 is the
last stable release; contributors should be working on 2.13 right now.
Similarly, we are not backporting bug-fixes to 2.12.  Besides, none of those
changes would be available until we have a new release, and new releases
appear to be problematic right now.

If another release of 2.12 is planned (e.g. because we backport some
bugfixes from 2.13), then we could update the docs.  But right now, I don't
see that happening.  I think we have already seen the last 2.12 release.
