A few things were decided:

  1. @melchoyce and @jami0821 are going to spearhead getting the design section of the recommendations into shape. They will report back within a month.
  2. We have made a new requirement regarding theme options. We are going to be requiring use of the customizer for all options from now. This applies to all new themes (submitted after this post is published). All existing themes have 6 months from today before we enforce this.

Our aim is to have series of posts to ensure education and that people know how to use the customizer. We will also share resources and how tos. We’ve been recommending it for a while, this is just the next step in that process.
