Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1259623
Build with lua support by default

Fixed --with_lua for compat-lua
Two things here:
1. wireshark should really be compiled with lua support by default. The lua lib is tiny (< 100k rpm) so the dependency pull is not an issue here. Many many wireshark plugins are written in lua, hence this support is quite important.
2. Fedora 22 ships with lua 5.3 while wireshark only supports lua <= 5.2. I'm attaching a patch to fix the compilation to use the compat-lua package. The patch is horrible, because of the problematic way lua is packaged on Fedora (not at all done with compat packages in mind). Note the patch was made for wireshark 1.12.7.
Also, if you're interested in having a co-maintainer for this package, let me know.

Spec patch for 1.12.7 and compat-lua deps
+1 to enable Lua support
I am in the process of packaging booth for Fedora ([bug 1314865])
and the upstream provides a Lua-based dissector:
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Spec patch for 2.2.5 and compat-lua deps
Updated spec for wireshark 2.2.5. No longer need to patch the source, latest wireshark versions auto-detects lua-5.1 correctly.
Fixed in rawhide.
