I see that it’s taking a long time to add a theme to the official Hugo themes site. There are PRs from 1st Jan 2023 which are not merged yet.
I don’t blame anyone for this as I understand that there is less manpower available. In fact I would like to thank @bep who not only leads the Hugo development but also reviews PRs relating to new theme additions.
I also see that @digitalcraftsman who has merge access to the repo has set his GitHub status to ‘I may be slow to respond’. As of now it’s only a bot which updates themes metadata and clearly the PRs are not merged from past few months.
I have been a huge fan of opensource & would like to volunteer to increase the manpower.
I was familiarizing myself with the policies for acceptance of a theme.
So far I have found that:
- Themes in this repository are accepted only if they come with an Open Source license that allows for the theme to be freely used, modified, and shared.
- When porting an existing theme from another platform to Hugo, one has to make sure that the requirements of the original theme’s license are met.
Is there anything else that I should be aware of ?
