I would like to volunteer myself hereby as maintainer for freeglut and
lua as those are both used by quite a few games and I think one or more
of my 70 + packages depend on them.

So I'll wait till tomorrow morning (gmt + 1) for any other interested
parties to come forward and if no one has yelled hard by then I'll
modify owners.list to take ownership.

I see they were alreayd rebuild by Michael before he orphaned them, and
neither of them has nay open bugs, so it looks like modifying
owners.list is all thats needed, or am I missing something?
