I think what some of the people are concerned about, Jim, is that your
project could also wind up going nowhere. No offence, abandoned projects
are pretty standard fare in the open source world. Not everyone
expressing interest in this project is intending to be a developer or
even top have input. However, a large number of us are invested in there
being a replacement to LuaForge (in whatever fashion that may be) and
the we cannot just keep pinging you on the progress.

We're interested in there being action too. You'll notice no-one is
worried about you taking leadership or such-like. We're simply worried
that we'll be waiting on progress reports or implementations long after
you've stopped developing the project.

A LuaForge replacement is not like developing a new module to Lua - it
affects everyone LOOKING FOR modules & improvements they can use in/with
Lua. It affects everyone.

As such, a project page where we can see progress (or worst case, lack
thereof) will give us confidence to leave you alone.
