When I started evaluating Geany, the 'Themes' section on the Extras
page really turned me off. Theme support appeared to be limited, some
of the links were broken, and some of the themes didn't work.
It took me a long time to find your geany-themes project on github,
since I only found it after searching Github for geany related
But when I found it, it really influenced my decision about switching to Geany.

So I would like to help to re-organize and update the Extras page. If
nothing else, it needs some clearer section headings. I'm a web
developer by trade, so please let me know if there's any way I can
I would like to offer to create the screenshots for each of the themes
in geany-themes, create a gallery page for these (perhaps with a nice
jQuery lightbox), and add a link to this gallery from the sidebar. I
really think the collection of themes is big enough to deserve it's
own page.

Does that sound reasonable?
