Thank you for clarifying this. I had assumed that it wasn't ready to be 
merged, but appreciate the confirmation.

We should definitely talk more about this, since there has been talk of 
moving the Wiki content to something Git-based rather than Wiki-based, 
which would allow for easier participation in the content editing 
without having to get access to the Wiki authentication.

I don't know what the timeline is on this, but would hate for you to 
sink a lot of time into this and it not be used.

I don't think that the existing theme is in a repo anywhere, but I could 
very well be mistaken. I guess Fabian would know.

The site itself is Wordpress, and the theme is "Blue Peace" - 
https://themesinfo.com/blue-peace-best-free-wordpress-theme-zzt - with 
some small local modifications.
