Also I think LuaJIT is not Lua.  Maybe it once was Lua, when Lua was at
5.1, but these days it is not Lua anymore, it's a mostly unmaintained
JIT compiler for an ancient version of Lua :)

I agree with keeping Lua and LuaJIT separate.

On TIOBE, just look where Scratch is. Oh, awk beats VHDL and Verilog. All this attention is mainly good to keep TIOBE as a company in the limelight for a bit. To the young guns, there are plenty of productive things to do instead of competing in this popularity contest...

hi folks!

i asked the tiobe team to add luajit to lua for higher rank and more
popularity, as i think lua deserves more fame. they accepted it, but
then i thought about ravi, and there are much more luaish languages
out there. so if you can collect more strong suggestions, then you can
send those as well. i've found , but i don't want to
send them the whole list. in the one hand cuz others gonna do the same
for other languages, and then gain will be lost, and on the other hand
cuz i don't know which are valid, popular and living projects. so i'm
just leaving this opportunity here for you to make a good decision.

criteria are here:

cheers, and all the bests! :)
