7.3 Approving snippets

The main task of LSR editors is approving snippets. To find a list of unapproved snippets, log into LSR and select “No” from the dropdown menu to the right of the word “Approved” at the bottom of the interface, then click “Enable filter”.

Check each snippet:

  1. Does the snippet make sense and does what the author claims that it does? If you think the snippet is particularly helpful, add the “docs” tag and at least one other tag.
  2. If the snippet is tagged with “docs”, check to see if it matches our guidelines for LilyPond formatting.

    Also, snippets tagged with “docs” should not be explaining (replicating) existing material in the docs. They should not refer to the docs; the docs should refer to them.

  3. If the snippet uses scheme, check that everything looks good and there are no security risks.

    Note: Somebody could sneak a #'(system "rm -rf /") command into our source tree if you do not do this! Take this step VERY SERIOUSLY.

  4. If all is well, check the box labelled “approved” and save the snippet.
