I got a quick peek at github. It seems that the directory structure starts at user level. For example, I could host Lanes at https://github.com/benoit.germain/lua-lanes.
Now, what if the project changes hands? Is it stuck forever under directory benoit.germain, or can github transfer repository ownership in case someone else takes over project maintenance? If not, what about creating a special "lua" user under which all lua code repositories would be hosted? This particular user could be maintained along the LuaForge catalog. Unless this is a bad idea of course :-).
