Well, this is the bug reporting list.  It's sort of like entering a car
servicing station when you are having a problem.  Definitely the right
place for actual problems, but not all the conversations triggered by
your problem will be meaningful to you.

Apart from this crossover list bug-lilypon, there is lilypond-user where
people can talk about their cars (and probably get told when some
problem they are experiencing is actually worth consulting mechanics
for) and lilypond-devel where the mechanics hang out among themselves
and are planning the next car generation.

lilypond-user may be a better place to frequent.  Make no mistake:
there'll be mechanics there too (and might get carried away sometimes),
but the general level of discourse should be at a user-accessible level.
And if it isn't, asking questions is not supposed to be frowned upon.

You can check out the archives to see whether you think frequenting it
might be something that might benefit you and/or others.
