"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 Kastrup.

"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: http://lilypond.org/sponsoring.html"
