The first milestone for this year's Symmetry Autumn of Code kicks 
off on September 15. We have three participants this year:


Teo is a repeat offender. In SAOC 2021, he was one of two 
participants to be awarded the final payment and the trip to 
DConf '22 (the other being Luís Ferreira), where he gave an 
excellent talk on his SAOC project, [Replacing D Runtime Hooks 
with Templates](https://youtu.be/ksNGwLTe0Ps?t=21649).

He's been making progress on it since SAOC ended, and the judges 
were happy to accept his proposal to continue it under SAOC 2022. 
This is the first time we've had someone work on the same project 
in two editions of SAOC. We're glad to see he's still making 
progress.

Razvan Nitu and Eduard Staniloiu are his mentors.


Lucian gave [his first DConf talk this 
year](https://youtu.be/ksNGwLTe0Ps?t=21650) on the subject of 
integrating DMD as a library with D-Scanner. And that's the 
project that he submitted, and that the judges accepted, for SAOC.

Vlăduț based his proposal on [an idea in our projects 
repository](https://github.com/dlang/projects/issues/84): 
implementing the QUIC protocol for D. The original suggestion, 
and hence the proposal, was to build on top of vibe.d's 
`UDPConnection`. Two of the judges suggested an independent 
package with no hard dependency on vibe.d would be more 
interesting, and Vlăduț agreed to work in that direction.

Vlăduț does not yet have a mentor, though he has ideas about whom 
to approach. In the meantime, if you're willing to participate as 
a mentor, please let me know and I'll put you on the list of 
people Vlăduț can contact.


Each participant is now in the project planning phase. This is 
the time when they're finalizing their milestones and task lists 
for the work they're going to do between September and January. 
We wish each of them the best of luck!

To Lucian: If you need someone to ping for dlang-community side of things, I'm available rikkimax for admin-y stuff.

Congratulations to all participants. I think it is a great decision to allow a long-term project to span two SAOC editions. Good luck to all the projects!
