[theme-reviewers] Things to Consider for Theme Upload Checker

I would like to put forth a few considerations for the theme upload checker
before it is used as a gating criterion for theme submissions:

   1. Use of obsolete functions - one that comes immediately to mind is
   "automatic_feed_links". As per the theme guidelines I have used
   add_theme_support('automatic-feed-links'), however I have a considerable
   user-base that is on older versions of WP and for that I have the older
   automatic_feed_links as a backup. The upload checker reports the theme as a
   "fail" based on this , while manual checks would reveal that the design is
   as per guidelines. Would it be possible to handle this kind of a check? I am
   guessing there would be
   2. I also noticed that the checker reports that I don't have a License
   and License URI (I have both in style.css). It should be noted, though, that
   I have multiple style.css files - maybe the checker is reporting on one of
   those. This is listed as "Recommended" rather than an error, so it is not a
   big deal.
