    Package: wnpp
    Severity: wishlist
    X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org

    --- Please fill out the fields below. ---

    Package name: lua-peg
    Version: 0.7
    Upstream Author: Roberto Ierusalimschy
    URL: http://www.inf.puc-rio.br/~roberto/lpeg.html
    License: MIT/X
    Description:
    LPeg is a new pattern-matching library for Lua, based on Parsing
    Expression Grammars (PEGs). Parsing expression grammars look
    similar to regular expressions or context-free grammars in
    Backus-Naur form (BNF) notation. PEGs make a good replacement for
    regular expressions, because they are strictly more powerful. For
    example, a regular expression inherently cannot find matched pairs
    of parentheses, because it is not recursive, but a PEG can.

    I think it's going to cause a lot of confusion if you call this package
    "lua-peg" -- _everybody_ knows it as "lpeg"...

    [But it's definitely a great thing to package....:-]

    Hence, I guess, the proposed name would be "lua-lpeg", right?

    Yes, I know but lpeg stands for LuaPEG

    I don't have strong opinions about that, I think I'll follow your
    suggestion but as an exception since it is just an additional 'l', but
    almost every lua library has 'lua' in the name, keeping it makes annoing
    repetitions in the packages names.

    For example the binary packages for the luafilesystem library are
    called liblua5.1-filesystem* and not liblua5.1-luafilesystem*, hope you
    like it. Here it would be liblua5.1-peg* instead of liblua5.1-lpeg.

    Cheers

    That seems best... The crucial thing, I think, is that somebody
    searching for "lpeg" finds it.

    Yes, it is in the new queue as lua-lpeg, and the package description
    contains LPeg too. Binary packages will be liblua5.1-lpeg0 and
    liblua5.1-lpeg-dev and the lua module will be loadable with

    require "lpeg"

    If you are inpatient, or want to test it before it passes the new queue,
    you can use the following svn repository:

    svn co svn://svn.debian.org/pkg-lua/packages/lua-lpeg

    Cheers.

    Oops, I've just discovered that "inpatient" means something completely
    different then the Italian "impaziente"...

    I was meaning, "If you can not wait, or want ..."

    There is impatient, though, with "m". :-)

    The word you were looking for was impatient. Many people do
    pronounce it a bit more like inpatient, but impatient is the
    correct pronounciation.

    Fortunately, your original version was fully understandable,
    as it looked to be a simple typo.

    The impatient inpatient in Patience, IN, replied: implied impasse
    implant in patient.
