Knut, the following patches from you are in master but not in stable.
Would we need to transfer more of them?  Particularly the middle one
looks like a candidate but I don't really know whether we'll need
additional ones.

The problem with the newest one would be that you generated it
automatically from the newest version of Emmentaler but the patch itself
does not consult the actual Emmentaler version and the commit you list
as breaking encodingdefs.ps (by adding a Haydn turn to Emmentaler) is
not present in the stable branch.  So I considered it best to leave that
one off.  Any chance for doing this automatically at some point in

    Issue 5338 - Fix 'out of sync' ps script defs
    Commit 12fe78825798191ecb7e5a4ee3064679773ae1ab
    broke encodingdefs.ps.
    The glyphs are now included in
    the same order as they are in
    the emmentaler fonts.
    The order of the glyphs does not
    matter as long as the encoding
    vector and the corresponding
    commands match.
    The change occured because I'd
    decided to use otfinfo and sed
    to generate the new code -
    it seemed easier, safer and faster
    than correcting the old code by hand.

    Adapt lilypond to ghostscript 9.22, change command line options
    Issue 5201
    We need to adapt lilypond
    to ghostscript 9.22 as our
    old --bigpdf parameter is
    broken by the new version
    of gs.
    --bigpdf is totally removed.
    is implemented to allow the
    user to select the appropiate
    set of -d... parameters for
    different purposes.
    The patch also contains some
    minor fixes of related bugs,
    introduces --eps to the
    command line interface and
    changes the bug-report
    message, as post.gmane is
