Thanks for the help. The thirft community seems to be pretty helpful.
However I want to stress everyone's attention on the fact that
Thrift's documentation is hard to access and not well structured. As
new users come around the mailing lists will get bloated with the same
basic questions which everyone would have. I am not pretty sure what
the hierarchy in the community is and who should initiate such an
activity but I believe that the following should be done:

1) The mailing list archive should be searchable. Starting a forum
might be even a better idea since it can structure the topics in
2) The different libraries, their pros and cons and their api should
be described in the wiki. I think the wiki format is best for this
purpose so that the community can easily edit errors and improvements
as they appear.
