I also don't see a reason for a hold. As for me being the lua maintainer,
thats only because it got orphaned and its used in a few games I maintain. My
lua knowledge is limited. So lets first see how these new packages go, and if
there is a need for lua specific guidelines at all.
Only noticed this now, duh...
I briefly maintained Lua in fedora.us and would be happy to help with it
if you want. Both rpm and apt-rpm have and use an embedded Lua interpreter
to varying degrees so I've both interest and some experience in it.
