[theme-reviewers] Draft Theme Development Checklist

I'm planning to finish up my tasks this weekend.

One question/idea I just thought of: is there any way we can put the WXR file 
on SVN, so that we can maintain it? I'm happy to get it into shape, but others 
may have other improvements, too (see Ian's suggestion to improve on the 
gallery post).

If we could somehow use SVN for collaboration/version control, and then link 
the controlled version to the Codex, that would be pretty cool.

Also, the WXR exporter seems to be throwing "headers already sent" errors for 
me. I'm searching Google, but if anyone knows of any known issues with the 
exporter, please let me know.
