I think lualatex messages on this list are on-topic as long as they
actually deal with luatex packages, after all that is why we have a
users list now as well as the dev list. I consider this list is similar
to the xetex list in that respect (non-luatex latex questions should
go to latex-l or c.t.t.).

However, I may coose not to read latex threads, so if my action is
required and I do not reply, it would be wise to forward a message
to dev-luatex or create an actual bug report.

Best wishes,
