Re: Libguile17 dependency issue - attention maintainer

Does anybody have fun to take over maintainership of guile or lilypond?

First, let me say that I have no intention of maintaining lilypond - I am aware that even replying to this e-mail puts me in danger of acquiring another couple of packages ;-) I absolutely love lilypond and would like it to stay within Cygwin if at all possible, but I don't have the time right now to take on a package that is going to be a little problematic.

I had a go at building lilypond for x86_64 about 18 months ago, but didn't get very far. I managed to produce an executable, but 'make doc' and 'make check' both failed, so I didn't have any confidence in the binary produced. My need for a working lilypond exceeded the tinkering time available, so I just used Fedora.

I've tidied up the cygport file this evening, and this (along with a small patch) is attached. Hopefully this will be a starting point for a prospective maintainer with the time to do it justice.
