|Re: [paho-dev] IBM .Net MQTT Client - to contribute or not?|
However, having a second .NET code could be a great opportunity for anyone learning how to write a MQTT library (and see how different codebases tried different approaches for achieving the same thing).
I'm not sure if this is doable by your legal department, but it would certainly be interesting to see one of the code bases in Paho and the other library could be uploaded to e.g. Github or Bitbucket so other people can also learn from it.

Hello everyone,I have in my possession the code for a .Net MQTT client written by several people in IBM. I was going to contribute it to Paho beforeBenjamin asked Paolo about M2Mqtt.I much prefer to have M2Mqtt in Paho, because Paolo is an enthusiastic and committed maintainer of M2Mqtt, and there is no one like that for the IBM code.So this is a simple question: should I put the IBM code into Paho simply as a collection which can be learned or stolen from, or not contribute it at all, as that could lead to confusion? (If contributed, it could go into the permanent incubator sub-project which I've asked to be set up).I asked Paolo, and he left it up to me. :-) Any other opinions please?
