Yes, I am experienced with creating themes with Drupal.  I would say
that the Impact theme needs a bit of touching up, but it's pretty
close to complete.

What I really would like to know is exactly how this gets done.  Who
has access to the Ubuntu Studio website?   How do we upload files?
Should I just create the Drupal theme and then pass the files along to
Scott?  That would be easy enough, but after that, who is it that
would maintain the site and add content?  Would content be created on
the Ubuntu Studio site itself, or would documentation be done using
the regular Ubuntu Wiki?

All of this is a mystery.  What is the actual process?
