and list similar pages 
for rulesets (changes between 2.2 and 2.3 as well as changes between 2.3 and 
2.4). At the moment this page is not linked anywhere in the wiki. Perhaps a 
portal for modders (ruleset/tileset/...) is needed?

I work on an update for the lua script module ( and 
will write a documentation / update the lua pages of the wiki. For a test of 
the new implementation I'm working on a test save file which uses all defined 
lua functions. Thus, the output of a given freeciv version can be compared to 
the correct result.

Furthermore, my local patches add functions to list all signals and their 
callbacks as well as print a list of all defined lua functions / variables. I 
will update the patches on at the time I have defined the test case 
and it is working for the rewritten script engine.
