That URL now should show all the captures of theme and template
changes.  Sorry it's not as atomic -- it's very difficult to do that
after the fact with so many changes having been made live on the

Smooge and I are going to work on writing up the process we expect
people to use to make changes, so that we don't have to go through
this again down the road.  Basically, AIUI the way to make changes
should be:

0. Fiddle with changes on the pt6 test box

1. Capture changes in the git repo

2. Roll out changes as a new release of the module or theme package

3. yum update the packages on pt6 test box

AFAICT we weren't making it beyond Step 0 for most changes, which
makes collaboration and identifying problems much harder.  Smooge,
stop me if I got any of that wrong. ;-)
