Is there a precedent for this? Has an external module been endorsed by the list and then by the Lua authors?I didn't know we had to get Lua modules approved...you don't. but acceptance by the list and endorsed by the Lua authors hopefully gives a library that all can use and is a small step towards lib standardization. This aim is to save on duplicated efforts.
Case in point: I was looking at luaproc the other day, as I currently use Lua Lanes (and before that, I used another one). I discovered many similarities and some differences. That's not the point, though. When luaproc came out, there was one posting (http://lua-users.org/lists/lua-l/2009-02/msg00404.html) that implied that a de-facto standard can only come from a Lua author.
