In order for Gentoo Linux to properly support side-by-side installation of
different versions of Lua (including LuaJIT), please migrate this package as
to lua.eclass (for packages which should support multiple Lua implementations
at the same time, i.e. most likely Lua modules) or lua-single.eclass (for
packages which only have to support one Lua implementation at a time). For
details, consult documentation of respective eclasses as well as
already-migrated ebuilds in the tree.
Please note that since slotted dev-lang/lua is currently masked, your
migrated ebuilds should be masked as well. There is a section of package.mask,
created in September 2020, which you can use for this purpose so that it will
be easier in the future to unmask them all in one go.
Thank you in advance for your effort!

media-video/vlc: migrate to lua-single.eclass
Both the release (build-tested for both supported Lua implementations)
and the two live ebuilds (not build-tested because git.videolan.org is
extremely slow now but have confirmed in configure.ac that Lua-detection
logic hasn't changed and the associated patch applies cleanly - exactly
for 3.0.9999, with an offset for 9999). Supports 5.1 and 5.2 as per
upstream checks in configure.ac.

Note that LUA_DEPS appearing in both RDEPEND and BDEPEND is not a typo, vlc build scripts invoke the Lua compiler and we want to make sure the compiler used at build time and the interpreter/library used at run time are the same, just in case,
