What to do with ‘dead’ themes? Licensing
on my WP-blog, I’m using a theme, Minima Plus, that seams to be no longer in development. The creators havn’t posted any updates since Feb-2005. It’s hard to get in contact with them, as they don’t reply to emails.
What to do now? I took the effort to adapt the theme to WP2.5-technology (widgets, options-page, ajax-commenting, support for various plugins).
If the original theme would have been released under a free license (e.g. GPL), I would be happy to share my adapted version with the community. But unfortunately, Minima Plus does not come under a free license. The files do not contain any licensing-information.
So I’m afraid, I can’t release my version of Minima to the public, as long as there is not clear licensing-information on the original theme — am I right?
