Patches to the doc are welcome, especially if you are able to highlight 
some of the forthcoming changes in v3.

For an example of creating your own theme see the o.a.f.themer.Coat 
plugin in whiteboard. Don't be fooled by the fact that this looks like a 
plugin, at present it is nothing more than a site that uses a new theme. 
I still have to do a little work to make it an installable theme - I'm 
waiting to see the necessary changes for v3.
