Open-source News Theme

Reported by: defries's profile DeFries Owned by: ocean90's profile ocean90
Milestone: Priority: high
Component: News ( Keywords: neso


While we were building the new bbPress theme we discovered that the WordPress theme live on would've been the best starting point. We now had to hack together stuff from various places.

Wouldn't it make sense to open-source that theme used at /news/ as well?

Oooh! Please! I can't believe that /news/ theme is not open-source yet! Me and other people want to use WordPress and not another CMS because we want to looks like /news/! That is first WP theme we saw! I was looking themes for hours trying to find it! And I also was asking for it in forums

I'm very surprised...

Yep, that should be open-sourced. Rosetta then can be made a child theme of it.
