This commit duplicated various resources. Further it seems that it is a exact 
copy of the pelt theme but it has not been done with "svn cp". This looses 
important information from where it is coming from.

I could find and where you modify some files:
maven.screen.css and maven-html.content.panel.xml

Meaning the rest of the files are duplication that we now need to maintain. 
The dispatcher has been written to actually overcome this kind of code duplications.

If you need to reuse contracts of pelt the best is to promote them to common and not 
copy them.

In this case it seems the most important changes has been done in the css and not in
the structurer. It may would be the best to incorporate the maven theme directly into pelt.

Are you aware of branding-theme-switcher?
