Thread Name: Tech: ABC notation
Subject: RE: Tech: ABC notation
I am not even clear if anyone has the authority to issue a definitive version. Without this, abc will never achieve its potential.

Also, there are two aspects to music which seem to be be incompatible in many ways - performance and presentation. Trying to represent the full range of facilities for both in a single format seems doomed to eventual failure. Other formats (e.g. MusicXML) also have restrictions in one or other direction.
