Someone else can very much correct me if I'm wrong but my understanding is
that the difference is that this is as a normal contractor in that he's
doing what is directed/needed rather then an accepted project on his own
under a mentor like GSoC.

Many of you already know Brian Wolff, who has been a steady

having gotten a start during Google Summer of Code 2010.
Brian is back for another summer working with us, working generally to
improve our multimedia contribution and review pipeline. In addition
to his normal GMail address, he's also available at
bawolff(a)wikimedia.org, and is on Freenode as bawolff.
Welcome Brian! (again! \o/)
I guess this simply means that WMF has contracted Bawolff. If it wasn't
for the email bit, I would had thought in a GSoC-like program.
