Project Steve Guttenberg is a PHP-driven diary/journal/blogging application that integrates seamlessly into an existing Web site. It provides many of the core features (including comments, trackbacks, RSS 2.0, tags, and searching) and administrative controls (all Web-based) of other, larger systems, but doesn't use a database, is XHTML 1.1-compliant and its look can be completely customized via CSS. It can easily be scaled to host several journal sites with a single installation.
PerlPanel is an attempt to build a useable, lean panel program (like Gnome's gnome-panel and KDE's Kicker) in Perl, using GTK 2. It has an object-oriented design for easy customisation and extension, and an applet architecture that means that you can create an applet in a matter of minutes.
GResolver is a graphical DNS query tool. It allows system administrators to quickly and easily make the most common DNS queries without constructing lengthy dig commands. It supports all the main resource record types, including AAAA, AXFR, MX, and TXT, and the appropriate in-addr.arpa address is constructed from dotted-quad IP addresses when doing PTR queries. There are checkboxes for controlling the most commonly used options.

If your theme is based on someone else's copyrighted work, then distributing your theme may be in breach of the original author's copyright.
You should always make sure that the author has given permission before creating a derivative work. While it's fine to take something and modify it for your own use, making it available to others requires that the original author gives consent.
A big problem I have with a lot of the digitial art out there is not that it's heaviliy derivative, with people using bits of other people's work (since that's natural in an environment where sharing is a good thing (http://www.gnu.org/)), but that they almost never get consent to do so.
Over at deviantart.com (http://www.deviantart.com/) they've had a lot of trouble with this, and have had to purge thousands of submissions because of copyright violation.
So always make sure you get consent before publishing a derivate work.
