Re: [mosquitto-dev] Official Docker Image

Hi Karl,

I work for CA Technologies, and at CA we have been using Mosquitto as our MQTT broker in one of our solutions. We are moving to use Docker for our solutions and were looking to contribute a Docker image that could be owned and maintained by the Eclipse-Mosquitto project. “Official” means that it was approved and accepted by Docker Inc. and will be promoted on Docker Hub. For more information please see:

The reason that these Docker images are using older versions of Eclipse-Mosquitto is because the images are using Alpine Linux as a base image. Currently Alpine v3.3 has Mosquitto 1.4.4 in its package repository and v3.4 has Mosquitto 1.4.8. 
Version 1.4.10 is available in the edge repository, but I was going to wait until a new release (the package is promoted to a release branch) of Alpine Linux before creating another Docker image.

We can also create other Docker images using different base images (i.e. Ubuntu) which may have more recent releases of Mosquitto or even compile the latest version when the Docker image is built. This was meant as an initial Docker image, but we can improve or add other images as needed.

    What makes it official?
    I mean, it sounds nice and all, but 
    a) who are you? You're email is from "" which is neither
    eclipse nor mosquitto. b) the versions you're announcing are two
    releases out of date, in the best case.
