You could use the compile farm at Sourceforge. These are the targets
If people want a particular target they add it to premake and this makes
targeting that platform easy. A test harness could be added to the
project and run for each platform and the packaged executables
distributed from SF.
If Lua standardized on a particular make system like this it might by
possible to create a standardized packaging and distribution system a-la
CPAN, Debian, RPM, ish-like-thing.
