With the emergence of Lua 5.1 I'd like to bring the packaging issue back on table.

In my opinion, the Lua Binaries project would be the best forum to provide "official" packages to leading distributions, as well. Personally, I am most worried/interested about Debian, and Fink packaging.

Is this already being taken care of appropriately (both packaging itself, and pushing those packages to main repositories) or is there something I could help with?

Some technical issues, I would rather have the binary program name be 'lua51', and possibly a link from 'lua' to the most recent (or: any) version currently installed. With Lua, it is extremely important multiple versions can peacefully co-exist (think application packages dependent on some particular version).
