Hi All,

Google has announced the next Google Summer of Code [1]. There have
been attempts in the past to form an official Lua project. While I
think it would be great for that to happen, it probably won't be a
reality this year (unless some super secret group has something
cooking). I thought it would be useful to have any potential students
reading the list to be able to find a list of projects that are using
Lua to choose from. So here are two projects that are very likely to
be accepted that use Lua:

o Nmap's Script Engine (NSE):
  (Keep in this page hasn't been updated from last year.)
  There are two principal needs for the project:
    o Students to write NSE scripts [2]. There is a great need here;
it's possible more than one student may be accepted.
    o A student to work on the Scripting Engine Infrastructure.

o GNU Screen Scripting Support:
  I honestly don't know the status on this project but it was
available last year and a student was accepted. I haven't been able to
find any evidence it was completed. It's possible it may be dropped :(

I would encourage anyone else who knows of a potential project
thinking about Lua or may even have a need that can be solved using
Lua to post in this thread.
