Dear All,

sorry for silence (don't promise to be more talkative, though ;) I read 
the list occasionally).

Hans and Luigi explained the background. Indeed, on bachotex2018 I gave 
them some snippets of my PDF library. Hans said "to large, how about 
making something smaller?". So I did pplib, with functionals dedicated / 
limited for luatex needs (eg. no pdf-write support, no images/fonts 
handling, ... minimalistic approach). There is no pplib website and 
there won't be, at least I'm not going to make one. From my perspective 
pplib is dedicated for luatex only. It has no lua/tex dependencies so 
can be included elsewhere of course, but as said, it's functionals are 
limited by design. It is small but I'm afraid its portability is still 
far from perfect, which is another argument for me not to boast or make 
it hippie public.

Regarding documentation, pplib API is fully documented from the very 
beginning (sphinx-generated html) and the documentation is maintained on 
every update. Dunno if included in some public repo.
