I recommend, instead of a discussion board, to set up a wiki server for the
Lua community. Wiki is a system for HTML collaboration. (There are dozens
of implementations to choose from, and it would be nice project for someone
to write an implementation in Lua.) It allows anyone to edit any page on
the server, using an easier-than-HTML syntax. It's more suited to
collecting knowledge in "book form" than having discussions, which should
remain on a mailing list or newsgroup.
Here are a few sites to look at. It's overwhelming at first, but I've
found it to be an invaluable tool for allowing a group of people to
document what they know.
