We have decided to enable the Discussions feature on GitHub for the MusicXML repository. This is intended to be a place for questions about MusicXML, but not bug reports in the specification or documentation, or proposals for new features: those should still be raised as issues, as before. Several issues that have been raised recently would actually have been better served as discussions, and so we hope that this will prove to be a useful resource for the developer and user community.
Adrian has integrated some further changes in pull request #281 for issue #185, addressing feedback from community members to ensure that the examples and the specification match, and renaming a couple of the elements specified. We anticipate the pull request will be merged within the next few days.
The next area of work is going to be producing some examples in support of issue #263 to bring the proposal for styling towards a pull request. We hope that producing some concrete examples of these new properties in action will help other community members assess the overall proposal and give further feedback.
The next co-chairs’ meeting will be on Tuesday 1 March 2022.
