"The LilyPond Report was started exactly four years ago this
month; although it has been a bumpy ride, with occasional long
periods of inactivity, we hope it has proven a valuable medium for
the GNU LilyPond project and the Free software world in general. It
has given us a chance to meet dozens of interesting developers and
contributors, to address various music-related questions and to
provide a hindsight into LilyPond?s development process. This month
however, we are contributing to the LilyPond project in a new, more
serious way, upon request from our co-editor and colleague David
"While several projects depending on LilyPond have managed to
fund full-time developers, LilyPond development itself has not
really seen significant monetary support from its users so far.
Every so often, however, users ask if they can contribute
financially to LilyPond. Creating a single legal entity to handle
such matters would raise a number of legal and administrative
problems which we are not equipped to handle at the moment.
However, we have a specific place where developers can indicate
their interest in private arrangements:
