It just so happens the packages have been split recently (like yesterday) so
things are cleaner now :-)

Due to the split up, if you install luatextra (with a t) from master, then you
also need luaextra (no t) and luatexbase which are now in independent
repositories. Besides, I'm currently doing a few changes to luatexbase and
luatextra (t) which break backwards compatibility, so I recommend not to install
them from master until further notice, but rather use the TDS-ready zip I
prepared at


If your really want to install from git, use tag 0.1 of luatexbase and tag 0.96
of luatextra (t) with master from luaextra (no t).
