 But Daniel brought up a good point for the long term. Lua is not
eating it's own dog food. Much of the Perl/PHP/Ruby/Python camps are
currently avoiding this assault on their collective pride. I assume that
even this list runs on software that does not utilize Lua in some way.

Maybe it is just me, but I find this vaguely embarrassing.
Oh yes, the dog food issue is very relevant. Jim Whitehead's WoW Lua
forums are all powered by Sputnik, as is the LuaSnippets prototype:

This is stock Sputnik styled using Betrand Mansion's LF2 design
mockup, but it badly needs more design attention.

The original mockup was done for the Projects site and is visible there: (there is indeed a difference... :)

I can try to work on a specific version for the snippets site if you want.

Those projects are indeed quite nice and I would love to help. One must pick their battles though, and given what resources I have access to I think hosting the forum might be the biggest bang for the buck I can offer. Plus I do need to get back to the two github Lua projects I started before people get all grumbley...

So, I take it no - there is no readily available Lua forum (or listman) software floating around?

Pitty, I personally think a nicely written C listman daemon that uses Lua extensively for parsing and routing would be a very nice match for the technology.

I suppose having the forums continue running on phpBB for now would suffice. Sooner or later someone is bound to write a luaBB ;)
