Thank you Feri for the suggestion, i.e. to ask Debian package
maintainers to do an official Debian backport of lilypond 2.20.0 to
buster-backports.  And that was exactly what renyhp did!  It did take
us a while, especially as the three of us (Don, Tobias and I) had been
rather busy, and I had forgotten where to start and had to learn it
all over again.

I am happy to announce that Debian Backports FTP Masters
have accepted lilypond 2.20.0-4~bpo10+1 into buster-backports,
and the ARM builds (arm64, armhf and armel) are all ready:

Please let us know your experience of using lilypond from buster-backports
on Debian 10 (buster) x86/amd64, Raspberry Pi OS, or any other
architectures or platforms combination.
