We currently are working on exactly this extension for Lua 3.1.
Keep tuned. :-)
PS: About the junk in lua-l lately:
1. Spam is too hard to avoid. Any ideas, besides moderation?
2. Unfortunately we have not managed to change the headers produced by
listproc so as to avoid personal replies being sent to the list.
listproc even puts the "wrong" "From" field, and misleads people
into thinking that the reply will go to the sender instead of to the
list. The "Reply-to" field is set to "lua-l", but is usually hidden
Does anyone know how to change this in listproc?
In the meantime, please double check a reply before sending it.
(This applies to me too!)
As a whole, we are less than happy with listproc; we are thinking
about switching to majordormo, as soon as our sysadm has some time.
On the other hand, I'm pleased with the traffic in Lua: not too much,
no junk at all (except for the last few days), only good questions
