No, dednat6 runs fine on the luatex of TeXLive 2020.
The problem is really in the Lua code in:


As those files are in a directory that doesn't say "latex"
anywhere - they are from ConTeXt - I though that this
could be the right place to ask, but now I am with the
feeling that it is not... =/

Where is the right place to discuss this?
Thanks in advance and sorry for the noise,
