Yes, Philomelos is still alive and I’m about to update the musicxml2ly-dev 
Github repo.  Over at least three years I have written almost 100 bug reports  
and many test cases for Philomelos and I will try to publish them as well.  We 
have fixed quite a few of these bugs.  I just implemented a solution to the 
tremolo bug reported here.  This doesn’t mean that musicxml2ly-dev doesn’t make 
any mistakes any more. The script is far from being perfect.  There are loads 
of bugs and  probably some regressions waiting to be found and some xml 
elements still cannot be converted.  musicxml2ly-dev can neither deal very well 
with insane MusicXML exported by some renowned music notation applications nor 
with user errors.

Now analyzing bugs, writing test cases and bug reports, finding and 
implementing solutions takes a lot of (“spare") time.  I seem to be the only 
one working on musicxml2ly for quite a while now.  The musicxml2ly-dev files 
have changed considerably over time. As a matter of fact I won’t have time to 
maintain both the Philomelos version and the LilyPond version of musicxml2ly.  
But at least I’m trying to make the source code available on Github.  It 
shouldn’t be too difficult for others to cherry pick and merge some or all of 
the Philomelos work with LilyPond.  As always: help would be very much 

BTW it’s _Philomelos_ (Φιλο philo- (loving), and μέλος melos (song)[1]) and 
_not_ “Philomenos”!
