As long as it does what you want, that's the main thing.
I did once wreck a Linux install by adding repositories at random to
Debian APT's sources.list file. That's what some website SAID to do...
Suddenly I realized that my Debian system had become about 50% Ubuntu.
And it stopped doing what I wanted.
I'm fairly new to Linux though i
have some background in programming, and I don't fully understand
Been using Debian occasionally since Version 3 somewhere. I've learned
some things, but won't claim to know much yet.
It looks like Debian does have ARM packages for LilyPond 2.19.81,
although I don't know which ARM your Raspberry Pi needs. (Someday I want
to get me one of those.)
No idea how that would turn out.
And if you haven't already seen it, the LilyPond Contributor's Guide has
good step-by-step instructions for compiling from source.
