Thanks!  It seems to me, that this entry

	['german-x-2009-06-19'] = {
		loader = 'dehypht-x-2009-06-19.tex',
		lefthyphenmin = 2,
		righthyphenmin = 2,
		synonyms = { 'german-x-latest' },
		patterns = 'hyph-de-1901.pat.txt',
		hyphenation = 'hyph-de-1901.hyp.txt',

won't work for LuaTeX, since the loader 'dehypht-x-2009-06-19.tex' 
contains this line

   \input dehypht-x-2009-06-19.pat

That is, it tries to load patterns under the name 
'dehypht-x-2009-06-19.pat', a /.tex/ file provided by package 
dehyph-exptl, instead of 'hyph-de-1901.pat.txt', the .txt patterns 
shipped with hyph-utf8.

I cannot suggest a solution, since I don't know the exact relation 
between language.dat and language.dat.lua.  Is the former to be 
automatically generated from the latter or are they both maintained 

Best regards,
Stephan Hennig
