Chip Bennett (who is one of the leading reviewers for themes) talks about the WordPress Theme Repository at WordCamp Kansas City 2011. Chip gives quite a complete walkthrough of what the theme repository is, how it works and of course how to develop and submit your themes for approval to the themes directory. Guidelines, code standards, security development plugins and more.
