That big Installation section is exactly what I was originally looking
for. Thank you!

Ah, that makes sense. Fedora doesn't seem to have the separate 5.x
packages that Debian and Ubuntu do.

I understand that keeping backwards compatibility is a good idea but I
was wondering if Luarocks 3 would let me avoid needing to set those
environment vars in the first place.

Now that the workflow for "repository local" packages is to have a
"./luarocks" launcher I though it would be natural that the workflow
for the "home packages" could be to have a "~/.local/bin/luarocks"
launcher in my path, overriding /usr/bin/luarocks. But maybe I am just
thinking too much here...

I was playing around with an empty repository so there wasn't anything
to autodetect. Maybe we could make the autodetection more discoverable,
by mentioning it either in the "luarocks init" output or in the
rockspec template iteself?

When I saw the "please specify a license" message I got the impression
that I would need to go after one of those license lists[1] to find out
the specific short license name that I should use to please the
algorithms, as I would need to do when authoring an RPM package. If
only I knew Luarocks would do this for me if I had provided it with a
LICENSE file... :)
