One of the minor frustations for me of the Lue mailing list is the tendency to re-hash discussions that are nothing really to do wth Lua, have been discussed at length (for decades, in some cases) and where there is a lot of information available elsewhere.

Open vs. free software is one of them. 0 vs 1 based arrays and which is "best". Copyright, public domain and how it varies across the world.

I'm expecting a big-endian vs. little-endian discussion any time now.

Now, maybe I';m a surly old cumudgeon, but can we try and keep things related to Lua and have the other discussions take place somewhere else?
