I humbly ask Lua team to stop confusing people and remove PiL 1 from

Nonsense. Get a grip :)

For me this not a nonsense, but a real problem that eats time.

We continuously hire programmers to code in Lua. Almost everyone does
not have prior experience with the language. Almost everyone stumbles
upon this problem.

And you can't afford a non-free copy of the book for these people?

We can and we do sponsor the purchases.

The problem is that people start reading PiL when they get invited to
the interview or even earlier. I guess that we have to put "do not
read PiL 1" in the vacancy text, but that's a little ridiculous.
