Lately I am working quite intensively with the Lua programming language. I will have to deploy the final system on different linux distros, mostly Debian 7 (Wheezy) 64 bits, so I decided to install it together with the Lua packages it depends on by leveraging the natural deployment system provided by the Lua ecosystem, that is LuaRocks.

In short: the official LuaRocks package found in Debian repositories is 2.0.9 and it has a bug that prevented me to use it successfully. I rebuilt and packaged LuaRocks for Debian Wheezy using the latest compatible release (2.0.13) leaving almost all the old settings but depending on Lua 5.2 instead of Lua 5.1. Hopefully it will be useful to others.
