Hi Steve

Thanks for your quick response. The links in the announcement email seem to be dead.

Is there anything specific I can do to help with this project?

BTW I was planning on emailing you, thanks very much for your unofficial Lua FAQ writing, it has really helped me a lot-Patrick

I am really enjoying Lua itself but the rest of the Lua world does not seem
to be working well for me on Ubuntu. There was some discussion about a
batteries included package for Linux a while back.

Here was the initial alpha announcement:

What work needs to be
done? Is there a plan of action? If so I would like to "get in the game" and
help out.

There were several opinions at the time:
(1) rather concentrate on the distro package management. My argument
was that there was more to Linux than Debian, which was probably not a
popular opinion.
(2) L4L should only have packages which are genuinely cross-platform,
so that it can be a proper brother to Lua for Windows. At the time I
was fond of LuaGTK (now LuaGnome) but I'm open to other options here
(obvious candidates are IUP and wxLua)

I managed to get a build going on OS X as well, although of course
without SciTE and luagtk being available.

Have a go at running/compiling L4L and see.
