How to advertise?

To be completely honest, there are very few software projects that I get excited about. I like the Damn Small Linux distribution, and am active on the DSL forums, and I love the fact that there are so many other active and creative Linux distros. But individual applications don't usually excite me unless they perform a task that 1) Everyone else is using an unneccesarily bloated or complex program to accomplish, or 2) No one else is doing. There are currently only a few projects I know of that are doing one or both of those very well, in my opinion, and one of those is murgaLua. MurgaLua is exciting to me because it provides a way to create graphical interfaces that can be anything from a simple GUI for an existing commandline program to a full unique program in itself, and it does it in a very small and fast script that is fully readable and editable. There is no other project that does this both so well and so lightly (and there are only a handful of projects that do it at all). It can also be used as a replacement for the official Lua interpreter in most cases.

So now the question arises: How do we spread this to others, those who maybe have been using Tcl/Tk or Perl or Python, but wishing there was something lighter and simpler for their apps? How might it be possible to get murgaLua known and used to the point where it might even eventually be listed on the tracked packages at distrowatch?

Most of the world, even most of the open source world, has no knowledge of murgaLua, and I think that's sad.
