Hi Ravi,

check out Otto's WP_Filesystem Tutorial at http://ottopress.com/2011/tutorial-using-the-wp_filesystem/ and have look at the Codex at http://codex.wordpress.org/Filesystem_API. This should get you going on this :)

I had run the plugin myself and assumed that WARNINGs are not grounds for rejections, but it seems that I might have taken the meaning too literally. I am guessing it is the warning for which the theme check failed. The warning is:
> WARNING: fopen was found in the file functions.php possible file operations.
> And that’s true. I do read/write files that contain user customisations (which I call “skins”) to my theme. These files are written into the directory WP_CONTENT_DIR/themestore/ahimsa. This choice of directory is based on advise from the wp-hackers list a few years ago (http://lists.automattic.com/pipermail/wp-hackers/2009-September/027526.html).
