Otto is correct, and as I linked here (I think) the other day, overly
minimalist themes are deprecated in 3.0. We define those as themes that
include a header, footer, sidebar, comments template, or comments popup
template, without actually including said templates in their theme. Before
3.0 we'd use Kubrick as a de facto parent theme. Now we still do, but it is
unsupported and deprecated.
