Yes, it does look like GitHub has more up-to-date code than the last official
release of Lua. Not sure why I didn't notice this before... especially as the
commit comments definitely indicate changes... so I do apologise for the noise.

I did not realise that GitHub was updated with developmental Lua code, so that
is a nice discovery for the new year. Is there any expected timeline for the
first release candidate version of Lua 5.4?

The last update to GitHub was July 9th... I am going to guess that there are
probably some significant changes from the code currently on GitHub then!
