Priority:  major              |   Milestone:     
Keywords:  theme, activation  |  
 Not sure if this is a bug, but worth considering. Just updated to
 trunk-2286 (although this had been happening since the 2100's). Running
 wpmu 2.8.6.
 1. Create a duplicate to b-default theme
 2. mod theme info in style.css to
 Theme Name: Bugle Notes
 Theme URI: http://buglenotes.com
 Description: The new 2.0 theme for Bugle Notes
 Version: 2.0
 Author: Mike Pratt
 Author URI: http://mikepratt.tv
 3. rename theme folder to 'bn2'
 4. Activate & Select

 Result: This message just below 'Manage Themes'

 "BuddyPress is ready. You'll need to activate a BuddyPress compatible
 theme to take advantage of all of the features. We've bundled a default
 theme, but you can always install some other compatible themes."

 The theme works fine and this seems to have no effect. However, you could
 see how this would lead many to believe their theme is not quite BP ready
 or activated or that something is not right.

 Is there something in the steps I took that render the theme not
 "BuddyPress compatible" (can't imagine there would be given what I did)

 Don't want this to be a point of confusion for users going forward
