I was considering that myself, but I am not sure all
these points would fit in the format of a normal talk.
This is why I was proposing a BoF , or maybe
some kind of roundtable? Is Hisham attending?
We could have an introductory talk about the state of the
library ecosystem though (good / bad practices, state of
Lua 5.2 compatibility...). I can try to do that if you want,
although I may clearly not be the best speaker on that topic.
