Thank you for your patience as the Theme Review team have gotten our
collective feet underneath us. The Theme Review process is working much more
smoothly now, and you should notice that Themes are being reviewed much more
quickly than only a month or two ago.

Regarding your Theme being rejected multiple times: we certainly understand
the frustration, especially given the much more strict quality standards to
which Themes are now being held accountable in order to pass the review
process. Indeed, one of those higher standards is that Themes now must not
generate any PHP errors or warnings, including the use of deprecated
function calls. While this change may be a substantial one for Themes
already in the repository, we believe that the end result for Theme users
will be a more positive experience.

Please take some time to read through the Theme
Review<http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Review>guidelines, and let us
know if you have any problems or questions regarding
the current review process or criteria. As we proceed through the review
process, we are expecting Theme developers to familiarize themselves with
the review criteria, and to ensure that their Themes meet all guidelines
prior to submission, including both the back-end criteria and the front-end
unit tests.

There are some tools available to facilitate this process. For example, for
ensuring that your Theme generates no PHP warnings, use the Log Deprecated
Notices <http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/log-deprecated-notices/> plugin
or the Debogger <http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/debogger/> plugin.
(which also checks for W3C HTML validation). To verify the front-end Theme
Unit Tests, you can import the current Theme Unit Test

Please let us know if you have any questions. We are happy to help you so
that your Theme passes the review process!

The WordPress Theme Review team
