Updating the locale sites with the WordPress.org theme + upgrading to 3.0x branch

One thing that has been bugging me a bit is the fact that the international WordPress sites I know (for instance http://fy.wordpress.org and http://nl.wordpress.org ) are still using the old theme. And that’s a shame imo. We have a nice and shiny theme on wordpress.org so why can’t we have this one on our locale?

One huge plus, next to having everthing on wordpress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ look the same, would be the fact that we can finally use gravatars and threaded comments as the current RosettaRosetta The code name of the theme for the local WordPress sites (eg. bg.wordpress.org is a “Rosetta” site). All locale specific WordPress sites are referred to as “Rosetta sites.” The name was inspired from the ancient Rosetta Stone, which contained more or less the same text in three different languages. theme doesn’t support that 😐

Also, I believe we’re still on the 2.9 branch .. isn’t it about time we got these things upgraded and in par with the main site?
