  Description     : PHP extension that provides a sandboxed Lua environment

 LuaSandbox is a PHP extension that provides a Lua environment which can be used
 to run untrusted code. It provides a performance benefit compared to using a
 standalone Lua binary.
 .
 LuaSandbox was designed for the MediaWiki Scribunto extension, which allows
 users to write Lua code on the wiki, and then have it executed. But it has
 no dependency upon MediaWiki and can be used standalone.

This package will be useful for those using the MediaWiki package, or for
people who have installed MediaWiki on a Debian system but don't want to
build the PHP extension manually.

This is unrelated to the similiarly named lua-sandbox package.
