One quick question: Prosody 0.11 has been released, and they say:
Prosody has traditionally used Lua 5.1. As we announced back when 0.10
was released, we are on the path to updating to more recent Lua
The recommended Lua version for 0.11 is Lua 5.2, while Lua 5.1 is still
supported for the platforms that need it.
Should we keep Lua 5.2 for Prosody ?

... here. Otherwise, it becomes part of the commit log when applying,
which we don't want.
