The Cutline Wordpress theme has been released under Creative Common's license, and therefore not hostable on http://drupal.org. Download and details at : http://neemtree.com.au/blog/admin/2007/sep/12/drupal-theme-cutline

The code for rotating header images was discovered by http://www.fcalzado.net/blog/index.php who is using a variation of Cutline for Drupal.

I'm curious. Why would having the theme released under a CC license mean it cannot be hosted on drupal.org? As I understand, modules and themes at drupal.org generally come with licensing information included. Why would it be a problem for the included license to be a CC license?

As far as I'm aware, CC can not be automatically converted into GPL (which is a requirement for projects on drupal.org). If someone knows of CC to GPL conversions, I'd be happy to relicense Cutline for Drupal and add it to drupal.org's themes.

Very interesting. It seems to me that CC and GPL are, to some extent at least, philosophically similar: the idea with each is to promote sharing of creative works by setting rules that encourage re-use and innovation. If so, then an incompatibility like this would go against the basic concept of each project.

I guess this isn't the place for a discussion like this, but if anyone can point me to information that would clarify the issue, I would appreciate it.
