I lack the time and expertise to be a part of the maintenance team
proper, but I can help with setting this up to the extent that I'm an
admin in the keplerproject Github group, if Diego so desires.

from people who are quite active in the community and who I'm sure
would make a great maintenance team for LuaSocket: :)
