    This Theme is creating problems for my existing theme. I've install Cozmolabs Commune theme which is child theme of Thematic. But in my Dashboard always update popping up saying new update available which won't work, because both themes names are same even though they are entirely different. How people can use name of an existing theme? Tomorrow I will create a new theme and give name as TwentyTen, imagine! It is damaging WordPress repository, please remove this theme or change its name.

    Unfortunately there isn't much to do about it. I've already wrote about this a few months back: http://www.cozmoslabs.com/1667-wordpress-automatic-updates-based-on-folder-name-is-that-a-problem/

    Best Solution would be for you to edit style.css of the Thematic Childtheme and under version number put 999 or something big. You won't get any more automatic updates from WordPress.org in that case.

    that would prevent me from getting updates from original author of the theme. But you could have added your theme to wordpress repository years back.
