I have no problem with Otto's idea's, it's how they have been presented, a do it this way or else is not suggestion on improving and working with the people who are currently volunteering their time to do it.

To quote Otto: "I'm currently of the opinion that the process is so fundamentally broken that it should be eliminated entirely."

    While I agree that it should be a suggestion for the notices/warnings/deprecated, I also come back to the conclusion that it's not helping the developers either.

  I didn't say don't inform them.

    I would like to point all of you to: http://themes.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/841
    If Otto has his way and just lets 'everything' slide, that theme would be on the repository right now.

  First, and I won't bother quoting more out of your email, there's no reason to attack Otto. That's silly. I met him last weekend at WordCamp Savannah and can personally confirm he is a man of integrity who cares deeply about WordPress and WordPress.org. I also spoke with him about the theme review process at one point. And, he is one of the few individuals with full access to WordPress.org. And I am sure he would be willing (as am I) to assist in improving your theme review tools as they stand.

  There's no way that theme should pass and Otto would agree. The double wp_footer() is a huge red flag. Aside from that, there might be issues relating to the footer, CSS, and spam link. But automatic-feed-links isn't a problem, neither is get_search_form() (especially if searchform.php's markup differs).
