It is always good to be nice to others.

Well, a person has a right to be offended by the fact that someone
publishes code under GPL and not on GitHub. :-)

Okay, seriously, I think that a Lua Users wiki page about licenses may
be a nice thing to have — so that instead of ranting impolitely each
time about a non-MIT license we could just politely give him a link.
(Note: it should not be anti-GPL, just explain consequences.)

Anyone knows a good generic "how to pick a license for your opensource
project" article?
