*****************

LilyPond is a music typesetter.  It produces beautiful sheet music using
a description file as input.  LilyPond is part of the GNU Project.

1.1 Versioning
==============

LilyPond uses a versioning scheme that easily identifies stable and
development releases.  In a version "x.y.z", an even second number ’y’
denotes a stable version.  For development versions ’y’ is odd.

1.2 Downloading
===============

The primary download site for sourcecode is
<http://lilypond.org/downloads/>.

1.3 Compilation
===============

For compiling and running LilyPond see the installation instructions.
These instructions can be found when you unpack lilypond, as
‘lilypond-x.y.z/INSTALL.txt’.  They are also available on the web at
<http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.12/Documentation/topdocs/INSTALL.html>.

1.4 Documentation
=================

The documentation is available online at <http://lilypond.org/doc/>.

   You can also build it locally: follow the instructions under
‘Building documentation’ in the installation instructions.

list, not to us personally.
