I second that.
I'm willing to donate a bit of my time to this project â the results
could be useful.
Lets design the interface first.
I think that it should be not a single module, but a family of modules.
At least these three:
-- String: expansion, escaping
-- Path manipulation
-- Process execution, output redirection and piping.
Do you think that we need to support non-POSIX environments? (Since
you need this module for LuaRocks, I suppose that you do...)
P.S. Should we move from Lua list to somewhere? Anyone else willing to help? :-)
