3. Child theme submission
There was a question raised about the number of submission for child theme in the last meeting. It was the first meeting in 2022 and there were not enough participants to discuss for it. So, we postpone that agenda for this meeting.
A large number of similar child themes are causing a lack of variation in designs on the theme directory. I noticed that there is 26 child theme of single parent theme. And those tickets are on-hold for the review.
Note: These are just an example tickets.
