Hey @berquist would you be interested in help setting this up as a basepackage that builds Lua 5.1 and 5.2 subpackages as well, much like we just finished arranging for lua-posix? If so please add me as a co-maintainer and I'll set it up.

this requires std.normalize, which I provide in the package lua-std-normalize

berquist commented on 2017-02-05 05:35

Yes. It looks like the PKGBUILD needs to nuke this line in the now-absent boostrap.conf:

help2man 1.29

as a build requirement. Removing everything to do with bootstrap.conf (and going on the GitHub page) reveals that they no longer use autoconf but luke, whatever that is; I can try and fix it, but would gladly accept help if someone already knows the solution.

Re-adopted after rename

xyproto commented on 2015-02-27 13:08

haawda, renamed. Please adopt.

Rebuild the package. It pulls from git.

Maybe I should let a TU rename it to lua-posix-git to reflect this.

Dear Maintainer,
could you please update this package to the current upstream version? We are using lmod ( and since the last update of lua-posix in November 2014 we have problems with the use of setenv.posix in lmod because of a bug in lua-posix (fixed December 16, see Thank you!

Because it pulls from git.

Why does this package not have any checksum ?
