We actually had some preservation about going off-list, as we thought there
might be people intersted in the project who would be adverse to the need to
follow two lists...

Well it strongly deppend on who is interested in what. I actually usually
ignore messages about GC and things memory related, as it doesn't really
concern my line of work.
But I'm very glad other people take care of (and interst in) those issues.
I think we should not dissmis any topic Lua-users are intersted in, just
because it doesn't touch our own needs and interests.
And I also think the Lua comunity is not large enough to fragment
Lua-discussion over many different lists, at least not too far.
I do agree that project related discussion - as in the case of LuaCheia -
should use it's own space, and I apologize for any swamping of mailboxes the
initial phase of out planning has caused.

Did I miss something here? What do those modifications look like?
