I think that's a really great idea! I did start writing something for eclipse.org/paho to do this in the form of a shared repo where examples could be stored (https://github.com/jpwsutton/paho-examples) and then a UI that made it easy to browse, I'll see if I can find my old code from back then as it may still be useful..

Perhaps a little tangential to what you mention, I have been thinking that it might be cool for us to create a common place to start collecting Paho MQTT tutorials, examples, and utility applications. The basics would just show how to do simple things in each of the client languages (i.e. a simple publisher in Java, Python, Go, C, etc).
Some other apps might be examples of common use cases - like how to publish data from a temperature sensor. These could be building blocks for real systems.
Just a thought, Frank Pagliughi

It's become evident over the past few years that a number of the Paho Java client's sub projects are no longer fit for purpose / may be out of date / unused / have better alternatives available. As such, I'm proposing that we archive a few of them to a separate branch in the Java repository (https://github.com/eclipse/paho.mqtt.java/issues/546).
The goal of this would be to allow developers to still be able to access the source code if they choose to use it, but to no longer build and release any binaries of these utilities in each release.
I'd welcome your thoughts on this, so please drop a comment in the issue above!
