I'm glad to announce the results of my GSoC project this year .
We've created the support for scripting the NetBSD kernel with Lua,
which we called Lunatik and it is composed by a port of the Lua
interpreter to the kernel, a kernel programming interface for
extending subsystems and a user-space interface for loading user
scripts into the kernel. You can see more details on . I am
currently working on the improvement of its implementation, on the
documentation and on the integration between Lunatik and other
subsystems, such as npf(9), to provide a real usage scenario.
I'd like to take this space also to publicly thank Marc Balmer, for
his kind support; prof. Roberto Ierusalimschy, for his comprehension
and support; and NetBSD developers for their prompt help.
