Bug#880974: ITP: lua-ljsyscall -- Unix system calls for LuaJIT




Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Santiago R.R." <santiagorr@xxxxxxxxxx>

* Package name    : lua-ljsyscall
  Version         : 0.12
  Upstream Author : Justin Cormack <justin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
* URL             : http://myriabit.com/ljsyscall/
* License         : MIT/X
  Programming Lang: Lua
  Description     : Unix system calls for LuaJIT

A foreign function interface (FFI) implementation of the Linux, NetBSD,
FreeBSD and OSX kernel ABIs for LuaJIT. This means you will be able to
program all the functionality the Unix kernel provides to userspace
directly in Lua. You can view it as a high level language equivalent of
the Busybox project in a way, although the functionality it provides is
somewhat different, and the interface very different.

This is a dependency for https://github.com/vavrusa/ljdns

Comaintaining it with the help of Lua packaging team would be great.
