[theme-reviewers] A Quick Question

A little of both ...

As we are trying to expedite the process, at least in the short term, I
would expect there to be more items missed especially in themes that are
resolved as "not-approved" but if there are themes that have been resolved
as approved and there are "non-trivial" issues found after the fact then
whomever finds them should be commenting on the appropriate ticket.

You can also drop me a note specifically if you feel the issue requires
immediate attention as a show-stopper before being approved into the
repository as I go through the entire Extend admin queue at least once a
week to make sure Trac and Extend are in sync.

The idea is not that you would be stepping on another reviewers toes, but
that we are working as a team and sometimes a reviewer just misses an item,
for whatever reason, but we should still have each others back all the
same. It is much better to have a theme corrected before it goes live to
Extend as the only way to "fix" any issues is by a very quick update by the
author (special circumstances immediate review as necessary) and/or
temporary suspension of the theme as there is no "un-approve" method once
the theme is live.
