String instruments sometimes use scordaturas: I’ve wondered how this is noted

Can anyone give pointers to actual scores showing that?
Although I don't use these tunings, a lot of composers use scordatura
and I think many of them just include details about the tuning and setup
in the program notes / performance notes.
The actual notation /should/ be fairly straightforward once that much
has been explained to the performers, but there are exceptions in more
extreme situations. :)
There might also be a little 'legend' showing the notes and how they
relate to the tuned 'played' (fretted) notes and so forth as well.
Hope this helps!
PS. If you want some examples specifically in LilyPond, I believe Trevor
Baca uses scordatura in several pieces - check out his GitHub if you'd
like to see the scores and source code.
