I do indeed see that post thumbnail functionality is here:
$image = get_the_post_thumbnail( $post->ID, 'medium', array('class' => $thumb.' post-thumb') );in rt-post-summaries.php  and in rt-init.php add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );
I will make the necessary adjustment to the ticket after I myself have checked it out.

  Hi All,

  This is regarding rejection of my theme for reason cited here http://themes.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/2452#comment:3 

  It states:

  > Theme must use Post Thumbnails feature for image-thumbnail and image-resize handling.

  First thing our theme uses "Post Thumbnails feature" for sure.

  Our theme adds thumbnail-support using wordpress core function and if featured-image has been uploaded, it gets displayed using "Post Thumbnails feature".
  But for old posts, which has no-featured images OR only contains external-image "Post Thumbnails feature" do not generate thumbnail.
  So we added if-else conditional block and when a post do not have featured-image or contains only external image, in "else" block we use regular expression to parse post-content for img tag and grap src path from that. Then we cache that image locally and generate thumbnails using timthumb library.

  We took extra efforts to automate things and maintain backward compatibility so a use need not edit old posts individually and had to set featured images on each of them.

  May I know why this is unacceptable on wordpress.org theme repo?
