Yeah, a little thing called a "PhD" happened in between. :D

But jokes aside, "LuaRocks 3" for a long time was a codeword for "this
feature you're asking for would require breaking rockspec
compatibility". Anyway, looking forward we should have a healthier
development process. LuaRocks is now a more collective organization,
we've been on Google Summer of Code as an org for 2 years in a row
now, and the idea is to keep evolving the tool to match users

Thank you all for the kind words regarding the release! It's really appreciated.
