I've noticed a few comments that say "review a few themes yourself" to
keep things moving. But I can't find a set of instructions on getting
I would guess there are some some place? Specifically,
How does one get assigned a theme to review, and what steps must one follow
to be able to deny or approve a theme?
It seems to me from reading the themes comments that:
1. It must pass the wp_debug message test.
2. It must pass the Deprecated Calls Plugin test (so there must be a
plugin for that?)
3. I must properly display all the test from the test data (which is
about to have a
new version released, I think).
4. It needs to support new wp 3 menus, and maybe other stuff? Which stuff?
5. Is there any judgment involved for how good the theme must be? Are simple
themes that just give a new color scheme enough?
I would like to devote some time to reviewing themes, but I want to do
it right, and
I haven't found answers to these questions. So perhaps when someone
a question of "Why hasn't my theme been reviewed after a long time?"
us by reviewing some themes", you could also point to a place that tells
the next step is to do that.
Seems like the current reviewers all know these answers, and assume it
for the rest of us to follow along. It isn't. It is scary to consider
denying or approving
a theme, and just trying to figure it out from following the
conversations on this
mail list is not enough.
Thanks in advance.
