Comment (by karmatosed):

 That would be great.

 @hnla and me had a skype about this last night and to summarise that:

 - First stage: I'm going to this week create a html template of the site
 so I can poke some design ideas
 - Second stage: @hnla will take this into a child theme and I'm there for
 support tasks on that - not importing any styles all fresh CSS and html5
 as such a small amount can do
 - Third stage: Running along side second ish and done bit in first is
 responsive theme - going 'Mobile First' approach
 - Fourth stage: html5ification of the activity stream and BuddyPress stuff
 - Fifth stage: During review phase the options and functionality needs to
 happen - this will be where we will need core dev hands majorly (before is
 also good).
     - Without user having to turn off components so no special set up is
     - Custom background linked to profile
     - Custom link colour linked to profile
 - Sixth stage: Mobile sanity check - Hopefully getting @modemlooper in at
 this point if not before

 Theme format:
 - HTML5
 - Mobile First responsive
 - Using normalize.css rather than reset.css : http://html5boilerplate.com/
 - using some of the print stuff and html normalization from this also

 - How should we host this on Git?
 - We propose using modernizr but interested in feedback from core devs on
 if want a html5 shim / respond.js or modernizr hand rolled solution.
 Specifically if anyone has feelings for / against any route.
