While the number of subscribers has remained stable around 2700 in the
last few years, traffic in lua-l has decreased markedly:

This change in the volume of traffic in lua-l probably reflects both the
maturity of the Lua community and the existence of other channels for
asking questions, such as stackoverflow and pt.stackoverflow:
I hope you can join these channels and help people out.

To repeat what I have said in these milestones, it's very satisfying that,
the signal-to-noise ratio in lua-l remains quite high. This is mainly due
to those who generously share their expertise with the whole Lua community.
On behalf of the Lua team, I thank you all for joining and helping others.

I trust we can keep lua-l friendly and welcoming, and full of good advice.
The list is the focal point of the Lua community and it is a continuous
source of motivation for improving Lua.
