- Subject: [ANN] New WIKI page BuildingLuaInWindowsForNewbies - beta

Following a suggestion from LHF  I created a new WIKI page which
explains how to build a barebone "binary" distro of lua from lua sources
on Windows for almost absolute newbies.
I think it is rather complete now, but before removing the "Work in
Progress" header and "release" it I'd like to have some feedback.
I'm especially interested in:
1. proofreading (I'm not an English native speaker, so I may have
blundered heavily - especially since most work has been done at late
2. testing of the step-by-step procedure, especially on Windows machines
with different setup than mine.
3. other blatant errors
General criticism is also welcome, but I suggest to wait until the page
is finished and well-tested, so that it can be edited directly in a
constructive way. Till then I suggest to post the feedback to this
thread (I have a template that generates the actual WIKI text, so for me
is currently far easier to integrate suggestion in the template and then
regenerate the page after a number of suggestion have been processed).
P.S.: is there a smarter way to get the link to the online archived
version of a lua-l message? To link to LHF's post I had to search for
the subject online and then manually browse the. Isn't there some
"magic" way to extract that information from my mail client directly?
