I'll make a patch.

I'm not sure how the process will work (from my own point of view anyway)
as Patchy only tests against master and we've split of 2.18, so I'll do
make and make check/doc manually if that is OK?

Assuming it is all OK, and goes through the countdown, do I just 'git
No, stable/2.18 is my turf.  You just go through the standard process in
relation to master.  If you don't want to actually push to master, you
can send me a git format-patch version against master (or stable/2.18 if
you want to rebase there yourself) and I'll take it from there.

If that's too complex, just stay relative to master and push to staging.
Once it went through cleanly, I'll cherry-pick from master into
stable/2.18 (fixing the merge conflict) and revert in staging

2.18-only changes are a bit of a nuisance to deal with, but fortunately
there are not all that many of them.

Here's the patch. I ran make and make doc against stable/2.18 and had no
Probably needs some more discussion.  It states

     There is now a new context called @code{NullVoice} which, while not
     appearing in the printed output, can be used to align lyrics.  It
     may also be used with the @code{partcombine} function.

And then proceeds to _not_ use it with the \partcombine (backslash!)
function but instead uses it to align lyrics.  Which is sort of the
whole point.  It produces alignment timing for an associated lyrics
voice _instead_ of letting \partcombine do that (\partcombine is not
really good for that).

So instead of "It may also be used with" this should probably be "This
can be particularly convenient in parallel with a \partcombine
construct".  Or something.  Maybe we need an issue after all.

I made an issue after all.


and uploaded a patch to Rietveld for review
