For those who don't know Kenji because he rarely posts on the forums, Brad put up a slide at Dconf yesterday showing the top committers by pull requests over the last three years and Kenji was at the top for '12 and '13. He was second so far this year, after Andrej. I don't know if he watched the livestream but Walter took a minute to thank him for his contributions.

There is word out there that Kenji Hara and bearophile are the same person. (I think it is the same AI running on a powerful server farm. :p) Ali

That explains why he couldn't come to DConf.

Not only a prolific committer, but also an incredibly reactive one. On many occasions, someone saw a bug, reported it, and Kenji did a pull request correcting the bug, *mere hours after it was reported*. Thanks a lot, Kenji Hara! D would not be what it is today without your commitment.

This has happened several times to me. If memory serves me well, the record was under 30mins from report to pull request. Kenji rox.

IIRC that's not right, he's still the top contributor this year. I may have just merged more pulls, but that was a different slide. Anyway I thought the talk was great, nice to see the face behind the awesome autotester technology.

If anyone deserves thanks from the whole D community it is Kenji. :) No doubt.

Seconded. Kenji is literally the only way I could remotely consider myself to be a language designer or compiler developer. It's amazing how you can just think up a feature, and magically the great Kenji implements it exactly how you envisioned it. Thanks! -Steve

Kenji has discussed, closed, refused, fixed, so many bugs and ideas. Thank you Kenji for your quite sharp mind and for all your work. Bye, bearophile

Add me to the list of people that are grateful for Kenji's work. Not only does he fix a shit ton of bugs, he does so in a reliable fashion. If you have an issue blocking you, and you bring it to his attention, you *know* it will be fixed. This makes him an incredible asset to the D team. Well, I won't mention names, but I think *everyone* who works regularly on D deserves thanks too. You know who you guys are :)
