My fellow engineer John Song has joined the ranks of our GSoC 2011 mentors.

John works with me on the larger ads team at Facebook and we've used or 
seen each other's code on occasion. He kindly offered to help with a 
Thrift-related project, so in case David Nadlinger's application is 
accepted John would likely mentor David.

Please join me in congratulating and wishing the best to John.

We have five mentors, and are always looking for mentor and student 
applications. Please refer to this page for how to apply:

Registration for students opens later today.

From student to mentor, this might sound somewhat strange, but nevertheless: Welcome to the D community, John! Thank you for offering to voluntarily spend your time on a GSoC mentorship – if my proposal should be accepted, I'd very much appreciate if I could work with an experienced Thrift developer/user. If you are reading this, John, would you mind having a short look at my proposal which you should find on your Google Melange dashboard? I'd be happy about any early feedback.

you wrote your post. ;) David
