There are ongoing reviews for lutok and datalog, in particular,
where a guideline on package naming would be useful. A rule saying
"use lua- prefix unless package starts with lu / lua", similar to
what we have for Python, would cover lutok, for example (but not

one if people are interested.

That would be excellent.  If you could also reach out to other
packagers that you know work with lua a lot for their input, and
include rationales for thing, problems they solve/prevent, etc,
and submit a draft, FPC will have a look.

I've posted an initial draft here:

I plan to look further into the LuaRocks situation once I have a bit
more time (sometime after next week) and make that section more
fleshed out before submitting this to FPC.

Just FWIW, it shouldn't be hard at all to create a drop-in automatic dependency generator for the lua(abi) requires (and provides for that matter), similarly to what's done for python(abi) dependencies.
