-Mosquitto is an open source implementation of a server for version 3 of the
-mqtt protocol. IBM have a closed source version of this server, known as
-Really Small Message Broker (rsmb). The plan is to make this a more or less
-drop in replacement.
+Eclipse Mosquitto (TM) is an open source (EPL/EDL licensed) message broker that
+implements the MQTT protocol versions 3.1 and 3.1.1. MQTT provides a
+lightweight method of carrying out messaging using a publish/subscribe model.
+This makes it suitable for "Internet of Things" messaging such as with
+low power sensors or mobile devices such as phones, embedded computers or
+microcontrollers like the Arduino.
-From version 1.4, Python bindings are no longer included, but are available
-separately from the Eclipse paho-mqtt project.
+Mosquitto is an project.
