Well, the music-glossary is a good source of information, especially when
people need to talk in english with music terms, but their native language
is different.
I'm one of that people, which are often ask to retype and transpose the
french horn parts (also clarinet parts when in A, sometimes the trumpet
parts). This entry in the glossary should be an aid for other people to
understand how to do this job (regarding this special bass clef you'll find
in most music prints today).
I'm alos checking, which changes would be required to make an "easy to
enter" syntax for this clef type (in a Beehoven autograph at imslp you'll
find the counterpart, a 'low treble clef' in the cello part, which would
today be printed using the tenor clef). Additionally for the syntactically
similar "clef with parenthesizes octavation number", which is often used for
choir (treble_8, parenthesized) when soprano and tenor have to sing quasi

I remember, there are a couple of german translations in the music glossary
which do not match the english description. That will be another future task
for me to list them all.

And, finally, my perscpecive is, to become a regular contributor in one year
(with a git installation on a networked computer), allthough quite limited
in the time.
There is a special task I'm asked for: The "Steirische Harmonika", a bisonic
accordion with a unique tablature. I'll see, how far it will become an
add-on to lilypond, or if it can finally be included into the standard.
