It looks like mod_wombat (provides Lua scripting for Apache web server)
will be released as a core module (i.e. if you download the web server,
you will get mod_wombat---no need to download it separately).
As part of this change, it is likely the module will get renamed.
Mod_lua is not really an option because there are several dead projects
with that name and it is felt that changing the name of mod_wombat to
mod_lua will be too confusing. FWIW, the current lead contender is
Anyway I've not had as much time to work with this module as I'd like.
The Google Summer of Code project involving mod_wombat never got
anywhere (the student had to drop out). But if you are looking to use
Lua in a web context, I recommend checking it out.
