Hi Alexander,

reading this:


I would answer that since they released their version publicly, it's 
also covered by the GPL. In some sense, the custom theme is a 
modification of the original theme, no?

I think that we should inform them of this. However I don't think we 
should merge their custom theme in our SVN or offer it for download. 
They would have the responsibility of giving access to the source code.
