If you could spare a bit of time, please do release them as full Git
repositories on GitHub and with LuaRocks rockspecs. This way, in my
opinion, is much nicer for the community. You'd get, for a little
effort of putting stuff to Git, browsable source, bug tracking and an
easy  system for code contributions (e.g. forks/pull requests).

As a part of community service, I can convert tarballs to Git for you
and create rockspec files (you still would have to register on GitHub
yourself, create the repos there and grant me /temporary/ push
access).

Alexander.
