    Can I make a theme based on twenty eleven and distribute it in wordpress.org/themes?

    I think edit a lot and make a completely different topic but based on that encoding so people can download it and put it on your blog.

    Thanks, i'm waiting a answer :)

    In order to be considered for the WPORG Theme Repo, the theme's coding would have to vary significantly from the original theme and could not simply re-use large blocks of code from the original theme. However, there is nothing stopping your from distributing the theme yourself.

    If you wanted to host the theme on wordpress.org, then it would have to vary significantly from the original theme - including its coding.

    You can modify and re-distribute any GPL theme. Just not necessarily via wordpress.org/themes/

    All themes hosted in http://wordpress.org/themes/ are released under GPL.

    No. Derivative works other than child themes are not allowed in the WPORG Theme Repository. Try reviewing the Theme_Review documentation.
