        Changing to Blocker. Cannot release or graduate without fixing this.

        I don't know that Thrift was inspired by protocol buffers. We were released atleast months before they were. Though I thought I heard that one of the FB people had been to Google previously and had liked the concept.

        Slee: Have some insight here?

        It is listed in the whitepaper as a 'similar' closed-source system, but then again CORBA and SOAP also make the list of similar systems. We were publicly released earlier.

        ex-Googlers went to Facebook and brought the concept with them. It has nothing to do with the timing of the Open Source code releases.

        Wouldn't it be their prerogative to assign or not assign influence?

        If they want to insist that the originations of Thrift have nothing to do with protobufs, then sure.

        Also, if we want to reference other work, then we may want to include Apache Etch (another incubating project) into that README.

        I don't pretend to know, I'm basing my responses on previous statements and a reading of the whitepaper as the earliest description of Thrift I'm aware of. I'm sorry if I came across otherwise.

        Sorry I'm late to the party on this one. I'm fine with the protobuf acknowledgement. I had used protobufs at Google a bit, though never actually seen the implementation. Pillar was the more direct inspiration to actually figure out the implementation, write it in an abstracted way, and release it.

        Should we also credit Bruce Jay Nelson?
