The currently installed version is 2.4.2. But if you don't do too complicated things, earlier source code should also be accepted.

In order to reduce the effort required for entering a melody, in some cases Musipedia adds some source code so that all you have to enter is basically notes (maybe also time and key signature). There are a few examples in the context-sensitive help (click on the question mark near "Lilypond" on the editing page).

I am open to suggestions for improvements should you run into problems!

I just found out about this great project and want to enter some melodies.

To submit the scores in Lilypond, I think I need to know which Lilypond version is required? Will Version 2.2 source files be accepted? That is the version included in SuSE 9.2; otherwise I should compile Lilypond 2.4 from the source.

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
