Craig, I believe you probably did something wrong if you had to work
with some library directly. Actually you generate classes from text
description and just use them. I worked with Thrift some time ago, in
2015 [1]. I wouldn't call it awkward. Protobuf is fine too, but
unfortunately we don't have any Protobuf-related projects this time.
Also it's probably worth noticing that the GSoC project doesn't imply
using any existing libraries, only the binary format which is quite

Christos, I appreciate your interest in the Thrift-related project. You
should know however that we already have a student interested in it [2].
Feel free to apply for it as well but in this case be prepared for a
little competition.


Best regards,
Aleksander Alekseev
