[ANN] hererocks 0.22.0 - Lua/LuaRocks installation script


Announcing version 0.22.0 of hererocks, a Python script for
fetching and installing Lua, LuaJIT and LuaRocks:


The main function of hererocks is creating an isolated installation of
plus LuaRocks in a selected directory. Lua sources are patched so that default
package.path and package.cpath point to locations LuaRocks uses to store
installed modules.

hererocks provides a few options to customize Lua/LuaJIT installation:
you can select compatibility flags, pass arbitrary compilation flags,
disable readline, and apply patches from http://www.lua.org/bugs.html.

New in this version:

* Added support for Lua 5.4.0
* Fixed activate_posix for Bash in POSIX mode

Credits to the commits in the release go to Fran├žois Perrad and Dmitry Meyer..

To install hererocks use pip[1] and run 'pip install hererocks' or get
'hererocks.py' from its Github project.
