(I have nothing to do with that company - just a opinion on the matter)
I don't feel that a certification is all bad.
I have been in the position where I had to hire Lua-programmers and that
a pretty though job. It will ease the scanning/selection process. Cause
if people arent "live" on lua-L / LuaForge / luausers.org they arent
really easy to get a reference on.
On another product that we are using we offen "give" the certification
as a bonus - "When you are finished this project, you should be able to
certify yourself in XXXX".
But a certification should of cause be "lua.org approved" - both the
test and the company behind.
And a little rant on your "supported by a community of high-skilled
developers" - Fine, but when Lua is a integrated part of your companys
development structure you should not have to depend on work of
voulenters - thats not a healty business-model. I do not want my company
to mis-use the free software development for our own evil schemes (Being
able to pay my bills).
So unless you are saying that we cannot use Lua to earn money I cannot
understand your position.
