Description : Tool and Python library for manipulating LilyPond files
This package provides a Python library `ly` containing various Python
modules to parse, manipulate or create documents in LilyPond format.
A command line program `ly` is also provided that can be used to do various
manipulations with LilyPond files.
The LilyPond format is a plain text input format that is used by the
GNU music typesetter LilyPond (www.lilypond.org).
1. Why is this package useful/relevant? Is it a dependency for
Answer: python-ly is needed for the Qt4-based LilyPond sheet music editor
Frescobaldi 2.18 and above, which I intend to upload after python-ly
is accepted. Debian currently has frescobaldi-2.17.2 where the
functionality of python-ly was not yet separated out.
2. How do you plan to maintain it? Inside a packaging team?
Yes, I intend to join the Debian Python Modules Team (DPMT)
to have the python-ly source package reside on Alioth.
Frescobaldi, which I co-maintain, is already inside the
Python Applications Packaging Team (PAPT).
