It seemed both Peter and I are working on a MusicXML importer and want to
combine our efforts.
A simple question: What is the best way to do so. Starting a new branch? Make
modifications in the main code base? Some other option?
Can somebody advise on this?

I'm thinking it seems most sensible to go ahead and put Peter's new patch
together with your existing branch however you two can hash out, and then set
about moving the whole works to the main development line as soon as
This is a new feature that nobody is depending on, and I'd be surprised if it
requires hooks deep into other things that might affect overall stability.
It's probably pretty self-contained, so why not just develop it right in the
middle of everything, and let it go where it will? That will save some
trouble in the long run trying to keep it merged up with all the other things
that are going on at the moment.
I haven't seen Peter's work yet, but I decided that anybody interested in
undertaking this sort of project is probably someone who is fairly serious
about code, and so represents a very low risk. He should have SVN access now,
unless I botched something with the permissions.
