If this information would be distributed over many bug trackers, it
would be hard to find such packages. As a result, nobody would
maintain them. Can we create a list of packages, which need
maintenance? It can be located on dedicated GitHub project or on
LuaRocks site. Or on both: sources on GitHub and pretty HTML viewer on
LuaRocks site.
