I updated the documentation just now for this. Hope that would be helpful to review it quickly.

Thanks for this too. It looks like another rabbit hole for me to dive into. However you mention "executable using salsa", could you provide a link as "lua salsa executable" and variations on this bring up nothing usable (unless I was searching for a dip)

I use this Lua script[1] I made to combine all Lua dependencies into a single Lua script. It automatically scans the Lua program being packaged and its dependencies recursively and includes all the Lua code and also copies over all the dynamic libraries to a specified directory to create a self contained package containing just 1 Lua file. 
     Finally I usually just make it an executable using salsa.

Thanks for this, it is very interesting but at the moment I don't want files I have forgotten to include in the build from being picked up. As the only time I will notice that I have forgotten to include something is when I try to deploy it

Having said that when things get bigger (and the edit, build, compile loop takes longer) this technique looks interesting. Perhaps I should include a switch for development vs production?

Again thank for sharing this
