What form would the "gathering" take?  Conventionally, one creates a
project page and a mail list, and people join the mail list.  It takes
time, however, to set up this infrastructure.  Preexisting
infrastructure like LuaForge/SourceForge/github lowers the barrier
(sites of more general audience than LuaForge have greater admin
resources, such as concerning git support).  Wiki pages can be set up
instantaneously.  These gatherings tend to be centered around a
specific implementation (e.g. bitlib or Metalua), possibly with only a
few posts, rather than a general goal ("bitwise operator support" and
"metaprogramming" interest groups) that can have multiple
implementations and many people sharing ideas.
