Can't the existing Kepler organization  be used? Wouldn't that be easiest? If one of the current owners  (Fabio, Andre or Hisham) could create a new team for LuaSocket and Diego would hand it over...
Now who should be on that team? Diego obviously, but probably also someone else... looking at the contributors  there are some Lua commoners there. What is mostly needed I think is someone that can intelligently discuss PR's and merge them. Let the community do the development, if nobody codes a fix for an issue, the need isn't big enough.
