Well, yes, we (or *I*) do seem to be running in circles in a sand storm.


1. Notation Reference section on - in the page footer, in rather small font (which I have missed until just now) is a link:  suggestions for the documentation, which takes me to Documentation suggestions.  Paragraph 1, sentence 3 has the link mailing lists (plural!). But all that's referenced there is the lilypond-users list. Other lists are referenced on the page, but none are dedicated to documentation development. So following this link path to its end appears to dispel any beliefs in such a list.

Incidentally, Lilypond appears to live in an alternative universe, as well as this one, since the link at the foot of the Notation Reference page takes us to what appears to be an older Lilypond website, or at least a different interface.

2. Notation Reference 5.2 Documentation suggestions contains what appears to be a discussion list which is NOT lilypond-users. Because this is in a section about documentation, I thoughtlessly inferred that this list was about documentation, and this seems the be the sole basis for my misunderstanding about this mythical list. Sorry for the mental muddle. Hopes can take to realities, but also to sheer fiction!

To the best of my knowledge there are no other places that might lead one to think there was a documentation list. More than any other single factor, my belief in this list was due to my have always encountered such a list with major open source software project.

I think it's all clear now!

There is a huge misunderstanding here.  There is NO SUCH THING as
a documentation list for lilypond.

All of our official, active, lists are here:
with the possible exception of the "frogs" list, which is here:

It makes NO sense to me to advise me (as the documentation manual
does) to post to what appears to be a documentation list (and I have
to infer that),
Please state exactly which page caused you to "infer" that there
is a documentation list.  I want to fix this.

I just went to look for this how-to-join
information again. I've clicked about 15 links. All dry holes. I'm
afraid my motivation won't outlast this test.
Please tell me EXACTLY where you are looking so that I can fix it.
Starting with whatever made you think that there was a
documentation list.
