We're never sure about anything related to licenses, just that moving to the
MIT license was one of the best thing we did. Since we had a different license
staring in 2003, our license texts say so. See http://www.lua.org/license.html .
However, the copyright line in lua.h and elsewhere asserts Tecgraf's copyright
since 1994, which is correct. On the other hand, I had a look in lua.h and the
copyright text at the end says 1994-2004, but it is the MIT license. Oh well,
we'll see. Thanks for bringing this up.
