RandomCanadian added a comment to T257066: Extension:Score / Lilypond is disabled on all wikis.

Safe-mode also prevents usage of "include" in the lilypond (necessary for some stuff like gregorian chant, which would be mildly useful for a project on Wikisource which had been interrupted due to this). I'm not sure if it's possible to fix this. Please advise if you have anything on this. I can provide an exact example of valid lilypond code that currently doesn't work on-wiki on request.

Would it be possible to implement the temporary solutions as described at enwiki here and here automatically (have the software ignore the "vorbis=1" and "score=1" attributes? This would at least solve issues about content in articles across all wikis while the actual problem gets resolved.

There is also discussion (with more examples) at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#Pending_Changes_again . For the record, in my opinion, this problem warrants prompt action, but since there are other issues (including the code for this being apparently abandoned), that might be more complicated than we think. Cheers,

RandomCanadian added a comment to T135597: Move MIDI to audio conversion from Score into TimedMediaHandler.

Hi, it was suggested I bring up my concerns here so I'll do just that. In the context of lilypond scores, I don't think that deprecating the "override_audio" parameter is a particularly helpful change. The main problem I have with it is that it separates the audio from the lilypond syntax and this reduces clarity: keeping the audio within the lilypond tags keeps it clear that it is not just a random audio file but one particularly associated with the lilypond example.
