Not a peep since, despite the fact that everything needed already exists - the specs, the pkg. format, the store...
What makes you think everything already exists? Did you read that somewhere? If you're just assuming that because the built-in themes exist, that's probably not a safe assumption, as those could use a completely different, or less refined version.
man, if you thought the channel backlog was long now, what do you think it would be if they all the sudden opened up themes and 10,000 new (ugly ass) themes started pouring in for review?
I certainly disagree that thats any reason not to do them. In spite of what Roku seems to be aware of, there is a world full of excellent graphic professionals out there, every bit as competent and experienced as any programmer that reads this board. Having just checked out the screenshots for the new "themes" section on the site-formerly-known as-the channel-store, i was pretty astonished at how bad they were. Not a hint of imagination. They look like they were thrown together at lunch. I mean all of them.. in one lunch.
And if very low consumer interest, then is hard to justify the fixed cost of documenting/creating process, so should just chop it
