I say you should just use LuaRocks and publish your things if you want LuaRocks users to use it. 
It's not like you need to be some sort of LuaRocks power user for that. 

As for failing to get others to publish your modules for you, most of times we cant even know some libraries exist. 

Which is why I believe in having a "central repository" for looking them up And I believe this repository should be LuaRocks. 
Of course you don't have to agree, but I wouldn't be volunteering my time on it for free if I didn't firmly believe on that.

I actually did this.  Several times even, especially for luapgsql (, but no success so far.
