Subject: [gentoo-dev] [PATCH] lua.eclass: initial implementation
Date: Thu, 03 Sep 2020 13:37:25
1 Ladies and gentlemen,
3 Here is my first attempt on creating an eclass which would handle
4 installation of Lua modules for multiple implementations. As some of you
5 are aware of, the lack of such an eclass has been a major issue for our
6 efforts on slotting dev-lang/lua.
8 With many, many thanks to mgorny and everyone else who has worked on
9 python-r1.eclass, to whom lua.eclass bears, ahem, striking resemblance.
11 At the moment this is only really useful for installing Lua modules but
12 assuming it doesn't turn out to be a total failure, I'll work on
13 single-target support as the next step. We should probably think about
14 adding LuaJIT support at some point too.
