Hi Martin, Eric and All,

As promised, here's some initial feedback from our workgroup on the
Plone.App.Theming product and the Theme Mapper.
I'm attaching a zip file with a summary of our discussion and some
detailed surveys that 4 members filled out who were new
to the Mapper.

Overall -- I'd say that there are 2 types of folks in our group
(experienced with Plone) and (experienced with Web but new to Plone).
Those who were new to Plone tended to want to use the combo method --
actually using the theme-mapper to build a theme and learn Plone's
structure. Those who already knew Plone wanted to just import and make
direct changes in the html/css file structure.

Everyone wanted the Theme-Mapper's interface to work better/be better laid
out in order to use it more as a tool (for the combo method) to build
themes (not just an inspector).

Hope this helps.
