I am also a Lua user, and as I was reading posts by the Arch Haskell
team I thought maybe a project like that should be created for Lua. I
would love to see a better support for it in Arch, and especially to
see all of Kepler packaged (including Xavante).

If other users on this list are interrested, please email me and maybe
we could set up a user repository for lua modules...
