Well it only took me a year and a half, but I've finally begun the process of porting my 2nd ever Moodle theme to 2.0 (er, 2.2). It's pretty much "done" except for overriding the whole yui-sam-skin stuff (dock and custommenu).
This theme is built off of "base" as a parent and Melbourne (the city) as inspiration.
Since this is a super fast port I'm willing to drop the analog clock from the header, which was kind of hacky and goofy anyways.
You can follow the development at my github and if I ever get it working well enough I'll submit it to the plugins repository.
