Otherwise 'lua' is from the argument populated by callPackage
which means it's whatever the default is.

(instead of the lua we're generating packages for!)

Motivation for this change

Without this, I was finding lua53Packages managed to pull lua 5.2 along
with which caused confusion/mismatches.

This can be observed by specifying luaPackages = lua53Packages;
in top-level/all-packages.nix for the awesome package,
and inspect the build log (or try awesome --version) to see
what version of lua it detects.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nox --run "nox-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Assured whether relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits CONTRIBUTING.md.

Otherwise 'lua' is from the argument populated by callPackage
which means it's whatever the default is.

yep looks good. In fact this might solve one other problem.

Great, here's hoping. It's a bit subtle-- honestly wasn't sure which would be used (argument vs with self).

Whoops I'll push a fix shortly to address this in the update script, gimme a min.
