Has something like the idea of a Lua Foundation ever come up?
The reason that I ask is because there seem to be many opportunities
to explore, all of which require some kind of momentum to be formed or
strict adherence to Lua's specific mission. As a result, many efforts
feels like hearding cats or sounding like an unwanted extension to Lua
I believe that it might be good if some blessed governing forum exist
for certain things to be decided,
independently from the authors of Lua. I don't wish to speak for the
authors, but I understand that they do not want the responsibility of
managing a desktop eco-system for Lua, be an advocate to Linux
distributors, bless a set of standard libraries, etc.
Who wants a desktop eco-system for Lua? I don't, for example. Oh, and
there is more to the world than Linux.
Since many people might choose to benefit from the results of some of
these activities, it seems to me that if there is a desire to see Lua
expand into more common use, while also letting Lua be Lua for those
that like things more as they are, that this path would be a decent
option to explore.
I see not much benefit, tbh, i your proposal.
