Hi Samuel,

Welcome to the LilyPond community.

LilyPond is free software (meaning “logiciel libre” in French) / open source. 
It is run by a community of informally organized volunteers across the world 
who work on it in their free time.
Consequently, what we could provide as an “internship” is probably somewhat 
different from what one would expect from a more usual internship in a company 
or public service.

The people who read the lilypond-devel-owner mailing list, which you've written 
your request to, are merely the administrators of the lilypond-devel list. This 
is a purely administrative role (like
triaging spam) and doesn't mean those who do it have some sort of authority 
over the project. I'm writing this reply on the lilypond-devel list instead, 
that is where developers actually hang out.

Basically, everyone, including you, is very welcome to work on LilyPond, but 
you want to be supervised, your internship contract (“convention de stage”) 
will be a contract between you and the
supervisor only, not between you and some abstract “LilyPond” entity. There is 
no LilyPond company, since LilyPond is not being run for profit, and we 
currently do not have a LilyPond association

To make sure we're on the same page: in practical terms, that also means a 
remote internship. (Note that I live in France, in Gif-sur-Yvette, and if 
you're not too far away, we could meet, but I will
be abroad during the last two weeks of your internship period.)

What is the context of your request? Are you looking for an internship that 
will be recognized and evaluated by your university or high school? If so, you 
should first ask them if you working remotely
on a community-driven free software project as your internship is acceptable 
for them, both on a pedagogical level and on the legal level.
