In the repo there is already musescore but tuxuitar is better for guitarists (and bassists) because it allows you to use tablatures, instead of the traditional style of music writing, even when you want to listen to the song with all the instruments together.
Musescore lets you use the guitar tabs only if you're listening to the guitar part and loses the chance to try out the song with all instruments contained therein.
So if you want to practise with the all instruments you have to learn the sheet music style.
Tuxguitar is released under the GNU Lesser General Public License.
In my opinion everyone will use tuxguitar instead of musescore because is easier to use.

I don't mind doing the initial packaging for this but ideally I would like a maintainer to properly test and keep the software updated.
There are also a lot of sub projects / native modules where the packager will need to decide to add support for them or not
I've been thinking about learning how to package and mantain packages for some time, maybe I could do it once I'm comfortable with the process. For now I'm up to test it if you or someone else do the initial package.
This has sat in accepted for inclusion for almost a year now. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
August 3, 2018 was an update. Who said that the package is not developing? The more multimedia software in the repositories, the better (especially if there are no analogues), why not include it in the repository?
Well, if nobody wants to step up to be the maintainer, that's fine. It's their free time and they're volunteers like the rest of us. You're welcome to step up, provide a patch, and maintain it if it is important to you.
