I'm not sure if this was specifically for me or a general reminder, but I'm
curious about it either way.
When I need a lua library, my first instinct isn't to go to that wiki at
all, but to go to LuaRocks. And it's suprising to me that the wiki
doesn't even mention LuaRocks.
I'm wonder if this is just a cultural split between (relatively) newer and
older users of Lua. I'd be curious to hear other thoughts.
We have not been faced with the need to satisfy someone else's
requirements, and for this freedom we are grateful.
