please do note, that luace is opensource project, so if somebody is willing to
contribute to it, I'll need their real name and email address at least, say
these days common Signed-off anyway, so what't the deal? And it's neither paid
support, nor my customer and I'm trying to help him as much as I can. Is it
really that rude?

Why? There's CC for this purposes and it's common in the opensource world to
send patches or questions to mailing lists even without the subscriptions.
Well, it's than wise to tell them, that you're not subscribed to the list.

To sum it up, I don't get this off-topic emails, sorry.
