Re: [paho-dev] Paho repository structure

FWIW, I personally agree that mosquitto is an established name, and it would
be unfortunate to lose it. (This is just my personal opinion, not an
official position of the Executive Director :-).)

If we were so inclined, there could be a number of ways to accomplish this,
even given that the current scope of Paho states that it will cover both
client and server. The simplest way would be to simply agree that the
server-side "stuff" goes into a nested project within Paho called
"mosquitto". There are a couple of alternative such a project could have as
its scope statement: it could contain only the C implementation (e.g.
current mosquitto), or it could contain all server implementations and
future contributions written in different languages (e.g. Java) would use
the mosquitto name as well.

I'm not prescribing any particular solution. I am just pointing out that
there are ways to make many alternatives work if the community once the
community decides what they want.

@Roger, writing a project proposal should be a relatively lightweight task.
If you're spending more than a couple of hours on it, there is a strong
possibility that you're doing it wrong :)  Wayne Beaton (cc'd above) is
always available to help.
