The Paho project proposal is a little unclear about the likely scope of the initial contribution. For instance, what components of IBM Lotus Expeditor micro broker will it include? For instance, will the contribution include a message broker or is it limited to MQTT client libraries?

Hi Glyn. I thought the proposal was reasonably clear about the initial contribution "The initial code contribution to Paho will include Java and C client-side implementations the MQTT protocol, contributed by IBM." ... in the scope section we also mention our intent to include a broker as we move forward. There are freely-available brokers around so this was not an initial priority but clearly it is under discussion as to what Paho should include. I'll blog about this soon but the post on mqtt.org also talks about this which should help clarify.
