Deploying custom plugins in production environment

I have created to the custom plugins for my requirement, what is the best approach to move the custom plugins to the production environment.
In my local, I am using Kong community edition and directly I am creating a folder in kong/plugins path and adding that plugin name in kong.conf. I am not using lua rocks file.
Do we need to add lua rocks file mandatorily for production env.
Note:- If we can package a RPM it will be better as we are deploying only rpms in our production.
