After the first release candidate, I was in contact with (one of) the
Arch Linux maintainer for LilyPond. I hope I can convince him to bring
back guile2.2 (and finally drop guile1.8 which lilypond was the only

As answered by Jean, it is possible to build LilyPond with Guile 3.0
but it is for sure not recommended right now due to less testing and
will not be found by default during the 2.24 cycle.
