You can pull the TintedGlass theme via git if you want to from now on.

git clone git://vps64.biterror.net/TintedGlass

It contains both a master and 0.24 branch. There both identical right

Also since your going by the themeinfo.xml major/minor numbers to
indicate an update to users can the minor number be multiple digits ?
Major/minor example: 1/18 (my theme is currently at version 1.18)

Also do you have to update these themes manually ? I don't won't to
update the major/minor numbers to often if you do.
