I am glad to see that you are keeping your theme up to date.  Nice
work.  I do have a bit of a concern about its eligibility for the
competition, however.  Your theme borrows most of its widgets from
Graphite, and the theme competition rules specifically bar themes
whose work is not solely your own.  While it is acceptable to get
inspiration from other themes, borrowing all the widget artwork is a
bit outside of what I had in mind when I wrote the rules.  The hope
was to get many entirely-new themes whose work was 100% original, and
the rules were meant to reflect that.
