"git describe" refers to a pretty outdated tag (?) that's why this package always build v33.4.0. "Manually adjusting" this to v35.0 and setting _package_helper 5.4 leads to a lua 5.4 compatible version :)

@caleb Done!

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

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 (UTC)

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!

haawda commented on 2014-11-25 19:35 (UTC)

Because it pulls from git.

Why does this package not have any checksum ?
