#6223: Provide information about committing theme updates directly to SVN

Component:  Theme Review    |   Keywords:
 The theme directory now allows authors to make updates directly to a theme
 via SVN. The handbook has been updated with information on how to do it

 There are a few more interactions where theme updates are mentioned but
 don't mention direct SVN updates. I think it would benefit theme authors
 to include information or link to information about committing via SVN.

 **Upload Page:
 How to upload a theme update
 If you are uploading a theme update, simply increase the version inside of
 style.css and upload the theme-name.zip file again, just like you do with
 a new theme.

 **Confirmation Email:
 ** Theme Updates **
 You can update your theme any time and it will be added to the ticket. You
 can do so by bumping up your theme's version number in your style.css and
 uploading a new ZIP file.

 **Theme goes live, confirmation email:
 We currently don't mention anything about updating code.
 Congratulations, your new theme {theme} is now available to the public at
 {theme url}.
