This package is an analogue of Archetype template in terms of its functionality. quintagroup.themetemplate package is used for development of all Quintagroup themes for Plone 3 (skins.quintagroup.com).
This theme template allows you to create initial theme package skeleton, i.e. create plone3 theme python package with nested namespace (this is different from default plone3_theme template in Zopeskel)
