I notice there's a TODO in the Contrib Guide about making multiple

need to do to test these snippets, since I'm always runnning the latest

same time.  Can someone point me in the right direction?  If I get it
working then maybe I could also update that part of the CG.

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

Got it! Thanks for the tip, Carl. I've adjusted my lilypond-invoking-script so that I can choose either 2.12 or 2.13 easily. I never realized where the binary was located after building lilypond. Silly of me. :)

I could start checking snippets a few at a time at night after the kids
are in bed once I get 2.12 running.

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.

Right, this is what I had in mind. Start checking them and keep the updated ones in a directory ready for uploading later.

BTW, Graham, in the 2.12 docs, CG 1.1.2 "Main source code" it still says
"FIXME test this" for the git commands.  The 2.13 version of same
doesn't say this.  The commands work perfectly (I used them yesterday
after a reinstall of my OS).  I could go in and delete the "FIXME"
stuff, but I'm not sure where to get at the 2.12 source files.  I'm
pretty sure my whole git repo is 2.13. How do I make a change to the
2.12 docs?

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.

Ok. That certainly makes things easier. :)

Thanks Carl,
