Sounds good.  I also wanted to mention that I put up a page at 
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Theme_Teams with the start of a list of 
information about the current themes and maintainers.

For any themers who would lke to start a team for working on their 
themes, please say so in the "Team/individual could use some help?" 
column.  (And if I missed any themes, I apologize, and ask that others 
help add the ones I missed--I basically just included the ones from the 
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Category:Themes page.)  Note, also, that I 
proactively put MythCenter and MythCenter-wide into the list of "wants 
help" themes.

Anyone who uses any of the themes that are marked as wanting help and 
who would like to help with that theme, please add yourself to the, 
"Contact person(s) and/or website" column.  Or, feel free to create a 
wiki page for the theme and provide some information about the theme in 
general and add a section for people interested in helping.

Oh, and the format of the page is plagiarized from the Translation page, 
so feel free to modify it, as appropriate, to make it better suited to 
theme-related information. Eventually, I plan to add links to theme web 
pages and/or wiki pages (as I find them) and repositories.  I'd like to 
have more information in the status section, but not sure what all 
should go in there (so feel free to add stuff and it may actually help 
us realize we need other columns or whatever).


P.S. Michael, even if a theme isn't finished, it can be added to the 
page, with an invitation for help, if desired.  So, if someone was at 
the point where he felt he had the basic style of the theme in place, it 
might be a good way to help get all those screens finished up.  Not that 
I'm announcing to the world a theme that hasn't been announced, or 
anything.  Please move along, now.  Nothing to see here.  :)
