  Description     : Metaprogramming language designed as a superset of Lua

Metalua is a metaprogramming language and a compiler which provide full
compatibility with Lua 5.1 sources and bytecode.  It offers a complete macro
system similar in power to that offered by Lisp dialects or Template Haskell.
Namely, manipulated programs can be seen as source code, abstract syntax trees,
or an arbitrary mix thereof-- whichever suits your task better.  It has a
dynamically extensible parser, which lets you support your macros with a
syntax that blends nicely with the rest of the language.  A set of language
extensions is also provided, all implemented as regular Metalua macros.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of lua-metalua back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting lua-metalua, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 512322 ITP: lua-metalua -- Metaprogramming language designed as a superset of Lua
 owner 512322 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <512322@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
