Guilty as charged.

At the moment, I basically don't.

To date, the only way I notice that a theme has been updated is if the
myththemes/ subdir has any updates in it when I generate new patches
for the RPM Fusion packages off of the current release's -fixes svn
branch. I do have a wiki account though, so I think I can set a watch
on that page, which would trigger mail to me when it was updated and
serve as my notification. Anything that requires me to remember to do
something manual is going to completely and utterly fail. (Yep, I'm
now set up to get mail when the theme page is updated).
