Okay, I forked Mutopia. The instructions suggest creating a separate
branch for multiple submissions. Does that mean multiple submissions at
once or for the foreseeable future? I intend to start with Kohler's op
151, since it's pretty straightforward.
When run with ly:page-turn-breaking, Lilypond is giving me a
"programming error", something about page breaking, and then says
"crossing fingers". It's not highlighted as a normal error or warning,
and everything works out fine. What does it mean?
Also, I created a cover.ily, which just contains some markup to create a
cover page. But when I include it in the main .ly, it pushes the TOC to
an even page, which results in 3 blank pages. When I comment it out, the
TOC is on page 1, the scores begins on page 2, and everything is fine. I
haven't found any combination commands that will give me a cover, blank
reverse side, then TOC on the next page (physical page 3).

No, you don't need separate files to post to Mutopia. I know that with
some big pieces they release both the complete work and separate parts,
but using separate files to create a complex piece is a good thing. I
think that the exact way to setup a complex piece to be usable as both
separate parts and a complete piece is not yet agreed upon -- I could be
If you're creating multipart sheet music with LilyPond, I think you're a
step above novice. But if you'd like I'd be happy to look at your ly
and ily files and give you my comments. But this is absolutely not
required to submit to Mutopia. The two things I know are requirements
are that your submission be able to compile in both letter and a4 paper
sizes without warnings or errors, and that you're able to provide a
source that is not under copyright. The first one may be difficult in
your situation, but honestly, I usually write my pieces to look good in
letter and just work in a4. That's because I live in the US I guess.
Honestly, I don't know how a well-typeset piece is expected to look good
in two different paper sizes. But that's a discussion for another day.
I hope to see your submission to Mutopia soon!

A little while ago, I started typesetting some pdf's I found on IMSLP.
I've been doing it for my own personal use, primarily to make the music
more readable for me on letter size paper. So I have some less than
elegant lilypond files. To make them suitable for Mutopia, doe each
piece need to be separated into its own file? For example, I typeset
Louis Kohler's op 151, which consists of 12 lessons. I put each one
.ily and the whole book as a master .ly file that includes all the
lesson .ily files. I set it up this way so I could put an
after each lesson and get the whole thing as a nice little book that I
can comb bind. If the lessons need to be separated for Mutopia, are
there some examples of how to set it up to make individual files with
their midi files, and also make a complete book. And does Mutopia want
the complete book?
I'm still a relative novice with lilypond, and pretty inept with
I have some competence with python, if that's relevant.
Ultimately, I want to create some collections of graded works, 50 or so
pages of grade 2, for example. A collection that might be useful for
someone at grade 2 to use as practice material, or that someone at
3 can use for sight-reading.
