Can I please have commit…

Can I please have commit access granted to for SergeyBiryukov? He’s been patching bbPress consistently for years, and ramped up recently from working on the forums.

Theme previewer missing a theme.

web1 appears to be missing the “tempo” theme for the theme previewer. I tried the normal commands to get it to update as well as reapproving the theme manually, to no effect. Need somebody to take a look at it, see if something is wrong with that directory.

It’ll be in /extend/theme-preview/wp-content/themes/tempo. Should have version 0.0.33 in there like the other webs do.
