There are currently 292 people in lua-l plus 114 at eGroups (or shold I say
Yahoo now?). That's more than 400 people. (And yet this does not really reflect
on our list of known uses of Lua! Please, everyone, add your project!)
Last time we discussed about this, the general feeling was that it's a lot of
work to create a newsgroup in comp.* plus many people prefered a mailing list
instead of a newsgroup.

Don't Netscape Mail readeer or Eudora sort mail into threads?

I'm glad I didn't have to say that myself :-)
About our plans for Lua and how we value input from the community, see my
message 200003180255.XAA03644@tecgraf.puc-rio.br in the lua-l archives.
This message is almost an year old, but its main points are still valid.
