Hello Andy. Thank you for the note
- this looks great. We heard about this news at the M2M IWG Meeting
If you are interested, I would like
to kick off the Eclipse process needed to contribute this client. It
will involve some technical and IP work as Andy suggests. Please let me
know and I will be happy to work with you to get that started.

Incorporating MQTT Lua client library into Eclipse Paho / Koneki ?
Thanks for sharing this with the list. It's fantastic that we potentially
have our first additional language binding already being offered to the
Paho project! It is also really exciting that Lua is one of the spaces
which really shows how nicely Koneki and Paho can work together (thanks
to Benjamin and his team for that).
A couple of points:
1. I think we'd need to think about the completeness of the MQTT v3.1 support
currently in your bindings and see how quickly it could be brought up to
par with the C and Java clients - just from the perspective of otherwise
having to maintain some kind of feature matrix between the different clients.
2. From an Eclipse perspective - IANAL but my understanding is that we
need to clarify that all contributions are written by the contributor,
or get agreement from everyone else who might have contributed. Talking
to Benjamin I think your samples (not the core library / luarock) appear
to use a third-party command-line parser and that same parser is already
being reviewed under the Koneki umbrella - beyond that a simple statement
that you are the sole originator of the MQTT Lua bindings is suitable and
we can look at getting one of the project committers to add this to the
repository. I'd personally be delighted to include your client if it is
