We are considering the publication of a book on "Lua Programming Gems",
along the lines of the famous "Graphics Gems" series and other similar
series. The purpose of this message is to probe whether there is enough
interest in such a project.
The intention of the book is to collect and publish existing wisdom and
practice on how to program well in Lua. Gems can range from detailed
tutorials on Lua features to advanced techniques and tricks. In particular,
the book will be an opportunity for wiki authors and other Lua experts to
polish and publish their contributions.
The Python Cookbook was built using community submitted 'recipes'.
Anyone who had a recipe published (or even considered) was provided
with a free copy of the paper edition. This worked quite well, and has
_lots_ of community support behind it.
The same thing could work quite well for Lua.
