I’m looking for co-maintainers for the Thematic project to help make Thematic one of the best WordPress themes available, free or “premium”. Specifically, I’m looking for motivated people to help with the following:
- Localization: going through the template files and translation files, making sure everything is up to snuff. The future of any successful WordPress theme hinges on universal adoption and I’d like Thematic to be one of the easiest to localize.
- Comments: the in-development latest version of Thematic threads comments like PHP-based Singer but I want to make sure it’s doing it the right way. It needs a once over.
- Bugs: there’s still a few bugs in Thematic—one I found this morning is particularly annoying. I’m just a PHP hack. Thematic needs a committed enthusiast who likes squashing things like this.
Good question. Thematic is an open source project. The more people contributing to the project, the better the theme will be (up to a point, of course). I have future plans for Thematic too that co-maintainers should be able to especially enjoy and take part in (I hope—if you’re interested in the project, contact me and I’ll tell you more about it).
Let me know what you think!
