Thanks again.

I understand, time is scares these days...

Maybe other Lilypond devs or people who can work on adding Musicxml 
support could help you a bit. I will Cc this mail to the Lilypond users 
mailinglist (you have to check that app!) and the Linux dev list.

We will see. If you have questions, requests or announcements, just let 
us know. We (Lilypond and Linux users) like to stay in tune with 

Kind regards,


Ps. If people have problems to get sound working on GNU/Linux you can 
point them to:
