Just finished my dissector for xPL. Its a lua based script.
To make it usefull to others, I would like to know whether there is a repository somewhere where I could store/upload this codefile?

Edited/hijacked by Hadriel: There is now a Wireshark Lua plugin repository at the Contrib wiki page. Some of the plugins linked there are physically hosted on the wiki, while others are on github/etc.

I don't think a Wiki is a good place for a source-code repository. I would put it in LuaForge.
Perhaps a better solution would be to create a Wiki page that lists available open-source Lua dissectors. In this list would be a link to your dissector's LuaForge project page.

Had a look at the wiki and tried to find an entry point for a page to list additional stuff. My take would be to add a link called something like; "Additional plugins: additional resources to complete your Wireshark setup" on the frontpage as the last item under heading "Prepare Wireshark / TShark"
That should then lead to a page that lists a number of links to additional material generated by the community. I think this would be a good idea anyway, independent of lua dissectors being included in the distribution or not.

You can post your project out there and I guess the community would notice.
