Tons of other tools out there will do the trick. UBB, Zope, VBulletin etc...

Yeah, but why should'nt we try to improve the general picture of Lua - The
more structured information that we gather in the same place the support we
give to new users (and existing)

Yes, but still, this should not prevent us from delivering a more structured
information stream. Mail archives are big and filled with tons of stuff,
5-10% should go into a repository/indexed system.

Its a lot of work for new users to search around different peoples more or
less updated webpages to find stuff that will give them something to get
started with. Why shouldnt we try to improve the information available ?
