No need. :)  I just setup your theme to be packaged for 0.24 from your 0.24
branch and for 0.25 and MythTV master from your master branch.  It should
show up in an hour or two when the scripts and rsync run.

What I normally recommend with this is to make a branch for the actual
version of MythTV you're supporting and to keep 'master' for either your
working copy or for MythTV master support.  Some themers have branch layouts
similar to the following:

0.24 (MythTV 0.24 compatible version)
0.25 (MythTV 0.25 compatible version)
mythtv-master (MythTV master compatible version)
master (themer's working branch)

The theme packaging script runs twice a day, pulling in anything you've
committed and pushed to your public repository, so some themers want to
have a 'working' area where they can commit/push without those work-in-progress
changes being available for download via the Theme Chooser.  Once changes are
ready for users, they merge them into the mythtv-master branch for packaging.
Some themers skip the mythtv-master branch and just hold off on pushing to
github until their changes are ready for release for users.

The theme looks great!  Thanks.
