1: [Lua](http://www.lua.org/) is obviously a great choice for an embedded scripting language in both [kernel space](https://www.netbsd.org/gallery/presentations/mbalmer/fosdem2012/kernel_mode_lua.pdf) and [user space](https://www.netbsd.org/gallery/presentations/mbalmer/fosdem2011/lua_in_netbsd.pdf).
3: However, there exists a issue where Lua needs [bindings](http://lua-users.org/wiki/BindingCodeToLua) to interface with NetBSD for it to be useful.
5: Someone needs to take on the grunt-work task of simply creating Lua interfaces into every possible NetBSD component.
7: That same someone needs to produce meaningful documentation.
9: As this enhances Lua's usefulness, more lua bindings will then be created, etc.
11: This project's goal is to set that inertia by attempting to define and create a solid baseline of Lua bindings.
13: ### Here is a list of things to possibly target
15: * filesystem hooks
16: * sysctl hooks
17: * proplib
18: * envsys
19: * MI system bus code
