I have added a rockspec to my small NaCl module 
This is my first time with Luarocks and making a rockspec, so let me
know if anything is wrong or not idiomatic.
Also, I am confused about the rockspec being tied to a specific tag.
- do I need to create a new tag and a new rockspec each time I change
- is there a way to create a rockspec for "the last version" (master HEAD)
- should rockspecs be defined only for _stable_ versions?
How do you handle this in practice?
Thanks in advance
