I see a few Lua packages have appeared in the review queue today.
I checked out the specs and they all seem very clean. There are a few
issues (/usr/lib/lua seems to be unowned in rawhide, although
/usr/lib/lua/5.1 is owned by the lua package), the luasql packages
leave /usr/lib/lua/5.1/luasql unowned, etc.) but these seem to be
minor packaging issues.
So, we need to decide whether we want to just go ahead with these
packages, or whether we want to do the "wait for guidelines" game
again. Is anyone interesting in writing some guidleines? It seems
like they'd be pretty tiny. Hans, the main Lua package seems to be
yours; are you interested in putting something together?
Lua SIG, anyone? It's a potentially more exciting language than Python
and Ruby: a properly functional scripting language!
