[Freeswitch-users] Run a LUA script when voicemail received

Thanks! Another thing to point me in the right direction. Investigating the
source, I found in the routine deliver_vm(), it makes these calls:
SWITCH_STACK_BOTTOM, "VM-Action", "leave-message");
This led me to the example autoload_configs/lua.conf.xml file, which has
this line:

    <!--<hook event="CUSTOM" subclass="conference::maintenance"

I should be able to write a script that gets called whenever something
happens to a voicemail box with this line:
    <hook event="CUSTOM" subclass="vm::maintenance"

Then, in my lua script, I should be able to call
event:getHeader("VM-Action"), and exit unless it's "leave-message". There
are other headers in the event that should have information such as the
length of the recording.

Just a little confused about the "event" variable. Is that a global
variable that's already set when my script is called?
