I have a (slightly off topic) question for the people following this thread...
Atahualpa was originally designed in the days before automatic updates. Anyone who has built an Atahualpa site with custom headers, custom logos, custom favicons or custom functions, knows doing an automatic update is a nightmare you will not forget! Likewise the them dev team is working hard on a new PAID theme, so real updates like non FTP sites (upload images via WP Image Uploader) or multi-sites or automatic updates or custom functions are all in the new theme you need to pay for, the old theme is just basically maintained with new versions of WordPress, but it is still very very powerful.
There are a group of developers "out there" (myself included) that have real solutions for all this and extra bells and whistles too! We have file sharing etc, and among ourselves we have hundreds of WordPress Blogs. In fact, among ourselves, we joke about a
Super-Atahualpa. Recently it has been suggested that we actually release this... Super-Atahualpa! Of course we would find a good new name to avoid confusion name... Right now it is called "To Code!"
The idea is that we would keep it current, any patches would added to a point release and you could fix it with just an automatic update...
We just wonder if anyone would like a FREE theme as a fork of Atahualpa that was designed to be easier to use?
The main goal would be an expanded Theme, more features, and easier to use for newbies and people with less experience. No "patching" (my wife is afraid "to code" as she calls installing a patch or bug fix).
Plus, being a cooperative theme (fork) it would allow many new features,from different programmers, tried and true - and tested too!
So give me a yea or nay... should we make a new free and cooperative fork of Atahualpa, easier for people to use that have little coding experience, and with expanded features and abilities?
Thanks for you time... you opinion matters to us. If we make this new them or not is really in your hands... We are listening. Remember this code is already written for us... I personally have it working on over 3 dozen sites. With over 40 years of writing code, we do it easy, should we share with you so this is easy for you too?
