Hi listmembers,

seems that there has been an interesting discussion about free
Typo3-Templates in the thread "TYPO3 ready to use web site templates". That
made me musing about extending the Typo3-Repository...

What do you think about this idea:

Goal: building a growing 'ready to run' and 'free to use' template base like
the houndreds of free Mambo templates. Look at
http://www.mambohut.com/component/option,com_remository/Itemid,73/, then you
know, what I'm talking about. Steps to do:

1) Discussing & defining a spec sheet, what functions and extensions a
standard template should include at minimum (e.g. css styled content, maybe
tt_news etc.).

2) Writing a designer and developer related manual, how a standard template
has to be designed in terms of file structure, mandatory files, constant
settings etc. (maybe Michael Scharkow could help with this 'cause he has
released his fine Urban Nomad template a few days ago). 

3) Writing a step by step guide how to install such a template (mostly done
by Michael Scharkow) including a list of mandatory extensions.

4) Everyone can then adapt good free, GPL'd layouts (configuration via
constants) and upload them to TER (possible need to open a new section on
ypo3.org for templates?)

-> look at http://www.oswd.org for example, there are a lot of interesting
layouts to start with.
