It sounds as though the current version isn't even legal, as the author doesn't have a commercial EXT license, and the source has not been opened.
I would recommend that the community tackle the project without using this unreliable, and likely illegal system.
No offense meant iv_ekker, but this has been going on too long. You had a good idea, and a nice implementation but I think this functionality is too important to a lot of users to have it under these conditions.

I wouldn't get too hung up on the fine print over this, nor would I like to see Sergei copping flak over what looks like a legal oversight. I expect he will tidy up the licence issue if he decides to commercialise it.
I think Sergei deserves kudos for developing a "ThemeRoller" for Ext, and some allowances should be made for legal/commercial innocence.
The key question is a commercial rather than legal one and that is whether any user/customer of this, or for that matter any third party service have comfort that support will continue.
Anyone know if Ext are planning to do an official "ThemeRoller" ?

I had started my project for personal goal of learning of the ExtJS framework.
I did not want to show the application to someone.
When i got the first result (theme creation and download) i contributed it to community.
It (sources of generated themes, css and images) was free for any usages.
I have letter of Adam Mishcon from October 06 2009 15:10:03 that
"You may want to add a post that you received confirmation that GPL use is permitted."
for generated themes.
I think all generated themes are legal
because changing of css and images are not "modification" and their sources are open.
I do not sell and not distribute software. I had not got any cent.
I had thought this project can help for theme issues for ExtJS company and ExtJS community.
English is not my native language and license agreement text was difficult for me.
I had not understood my software is illegal. Yes it is my mistake.
I am sorry.
I thank Dorgan and all others for explanation.
My application is for my personal goals for learning and experienses now.
I think it would be good for ExtJS company or ExtJS community to create suitable accessible reliable official "Theme Roller".
I want to ask moderator to delete the thread if it is possible.

There definitely needs to be a "standard" theme roller by Ext LLC.
