[resolved] Has the update process for submitted (and approved) themes changed? (6 posts)

    Just wondering if the process for uploading an approved theme has changed in the last year or so. I have SVN access to the plugin repo but when I try to commit to SVN for themes I get a 403 forbidden. I can't find any information one way or another about submitting updates. Is it all through the uploader and Trac now? i.e. do theme updates go through the review process as well?

    The process hasn't changed for years. A new review process was added almost 2 years ago but theme devs have never had direct access to the theme svn.

    Yes

    Thanks. The only thing I could find on the subject was this: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/svn-access-to-theme-repository

    which is only a year old. Since the reply was just "email themes @ wordpress" I assumed that the resolution was giving this guy access, since I saw there had been updates made to his theme since that post. So I emailed, but never got a reply and I've got some fixes in the queue. Would be helpful to have that posted definitively somewhere on the site.

    Maybe I'm dense, but that doesn't say anything specifically about updates to your approved theme. If someone is familiar with the plugins repository (which I am) it's confusing that there isn't direct SVN access after the theme review is complete.

    All theme submissions go through that page - even updates. Theme developers have never had access to SVN.
