Theme Unit Test work update

@technocrews gave an update about the theme unit test. He is looking for anything that needs to be updated.
He asked for some assistance regarding maintaining open sourceOpen Source Open Source denotes software for which the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified. Open Source **must be** delivered via a licensing model, see GPL. projects on GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. He has been in contact with @poena and @williampatton as well about GitHub. He is planning to have a meeting with all contributors this weekend.

During the meeting, we presented the current workflow with opening issues and pull requests, and this will be added to the project’s read me file.

Open Floor

In this part, @poena brought up short information to theme authors that, “If your theme gets stuck on the themes TracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub., if it does not go live in the directory after the ticket has the “live” status, if your slug is incorrect in the directory, or if your preview is broken – then those questions need to be brought up in the #meta channel, not #themereview. The themes team has no access to troubleshoot or resolve those issues.”

She was also looking for ideas to make the review process documentation clearer. There was also a short discussion about changing the Unsplash image message that shows in trac.
