Pretty common sense this.

So what's the official position? We shall make sure themes hosted in the
directory, and any extended versions of it must be fully GPL licensed, and
beyond that not look too much into other themes or links in the author
website that's unrelated to the WP theme directory? (Of course we shall
make sure their site is personal or professional, not spammy, etc.)
