May I suggest naming them http://www.lua.org/ftp/patch-lua-5.1.3-1,
-2, and so on.
Maybe the numbering should mirror that of the bugs, so the current
patch would be patch-lua-5.1.3-10.
I would rather have the patches accumulating (-4 contains fixes
1,2,3,4) but taste may vary here?

Unfortunately this is rather sub-optimation for distribution
packaging / packagers,
This patch includes fixes for two bugs that were reported recently:
All feedback welcome.
especially due to the ever changing file.
If you do not want to spin new full tarballs (which I would vote
for), please at least
avoid the ever changing file (time consuming to track, review and
not nice to checksum),
and put single patches with numerical ordering into some directory,
like e.g GNU bash
(and others) is doing it. This way it's way more easy to follow,
track, review and
friendly to common packaging system which checksum the upstream
especially for security.
