GForge offers the snippet tab (see for an example of one) but we found it too cumbersome to use and decided to cut it from LuaForge.

If that turns out to be useful, we can activate it back. Please take a look at other snippet directories before jumping to conclusions, the issue is quite subtle.

I agree, Wiki/LuaForge or anything else can take care of snippets.

CPAN for Lua is another thing and a wild adventure per se (we have been refering to this concept internally as LuaRocks, just like RubyGems).
