[theme-reviewers] Forking A Theme

Hi all,

I'm currently reviewing this theme
https://themes.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/20060 and a theme @pseudoxiah made
me aware that that theme is 'a fork' of another theme. The diff can be seen

The theme author argues that the reason for him to fork this instead of
creating a child theme is that he wants user to further create a child
theme based on this theme and this theme is made to be compatible and used
with specific plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/clickhome-myhome/)

I honestly think that it is okay to fork and submit a fork as long as the
theme gives appropriate credit to the original theme. However, I'm still
new at this and wonder is there any specific guideline about forking a
theme and submit it to the repo?

Thank you.

Best Regards,

Fikri Rasyid
