Anyway, if Fomus will be mentioned it is important to state there it *IS* being actively developed...

Hi all,

Colin Campbell has been working with me on the Introduction of the
new website.  However, we're still debating what to do with the
"Easier editing" page:

In particular, should we:
   1) list all programs that help or produce lilypond input code on
      this page, or

   2) only list a few programs here and list the rest elsewhere?
      (probably somewhere in Usage, with a link from this page
      to that location)

When he began working, he had one opinion and I had the other.
But over the past four months, we've switched positions like a
finely-honed comedy act -- we still disagree, but we've both taken
up the other person's initial position.

The argument for #1: we have a unified place for people to look;
it's easier to update; it's easier to find; etc.

The argument for #2: it doesn't make sense to have algorithmic
programming environments like Strasheela and FOMUS in the same
list as Denemo, Frescobaldi, and LilyPondTool; having the extra
options will only confused newbies; if we keep 4 or 5
"highlighted" programs in this list and move the rest somewhere
else, it won't be much harder to maintain the list; etc.

I'm not particularly looking for votes on this issue -- rather,
I'm looking for reasons for (or against) #1 and #2 that we haven't
thought of.  It would be great if somebody said "we should do #x
because XYZ" and then have us go "of course!  XYZ!  That makes
everything totally clear; we all agree due to XYZ."

If you have other concerns about the website, please don't mention
them here.  I'll be posting other questions once this issue is
