Not really but then I am no expert.

It doesn't bug me, I am not sure who would use it at this point though.  

On a related note, after Geeklog 2.0.0 is out the door, forum is updated,
etc.. and I start working on the redesign a bit I would like to promote more
theme development within the community.  Visual appealing themes go a long
way in promoting the CMS it is for.

This (see below) got caught in the spam filter. Just wanted to check:

- What do people think of this?
- Can anyone think of any potential licensing problems?

I know that, for example, the Wordpress people had some fights over
commercial templates vs. the GPL. Our themes are mostly HTML and CSS (i.e.
not code, so no GPL there), except for a tiny snippet of PHP code in

Personally, I'm not opposed to the idea of commercial themes. Just wanted to
check what others think and also that we don't have any potential problems
lurking here (like we have with commercial plugins).

bye, Dirk
