I hope to!
How about a "micro-track on module management" in the workshop with
* a talk on LuaRocks (history, current status, roadmap, etc)
* Peter's talk on LuaDist
* a BoF/round-table for discussing needs of module authors and users,
LR, LD, the rockspec format, etc (in typical BoF fashion, this could
be done after the main event in one of the days).
