Norbert has sent your request upstream, and got the following
response from Taco:
Here is my opinion on those patches:
luafilesystem: that local patch will go away soon (it is possible to
slide the new functions in elsewhere, where they are not interfering
with the upstream).
luasocket: this (hstrerror) patch is good thing to go upstream.
luazip: this is not a local patch, I am just using an outdated
So, please push the patch for luasocket upstream or put the patch
into Debian. I'll ask Taco, whether he has already an opinion
regarding the patch for luafilesystem.
