I posted a list of issues on the LR ML lately:

Most important: lack of "luarocks update" command, the issue with one
being able to accidentally install two versions of the same rock and
no sane way to control which one gets used.

In my opinion, LR needs polishing. It is definitely usable now, and
I'm using it in production, but I have to fight against it sometimes.
