[mythtv-theming] The version of the TintedGlass theme available via the theme chooser for trunk (0.25) is very old.

Thanks, my packaging script was still pointed at your old repo
at git://vps64.biterror.net/TintedGlass.  I reran the packaging
script and after the ftp rsync happens tonight, I'll update the
themes.zip index on the webserver.

On a somewhat related note, I do plan on changing the download
process slightly in the near future (ie, before 0.25 is released)
so that we can get a count of how many times each theme is
downloaded.  Currently the actual download is directed at the
ftp mirrors to save bandwidth on our server meaning we don't have
any count of downloads.  I plan on changing this to hit our server
first and get redirected to the actual ftp file so that we can
get you guys some feedback on download counts for your themes.

We also plan on adding a new tag to the themeinfo.xml file to
indicate which version of MythTV a theme is compatible with.
This will happen post-0.25 at some point.

One of the advantages of having themes centralized is that it
makes it easier for new (and existing) themers to browse around
other themes for hints or help.  It also helps promote a theming
community.  Michael Dean can move your theme in if you want and
you'll still retain full control over access to it.
