Theme Inheritance

Hi,

So I'm trying to create a theme that inherits from prosilver as to limit the number of files I'll need to update in future. However it's not too clear from the documentation how much of a theme can be inherited. Can the imageset, theme and template files all be inherited? I tried this, but when attempting to install the theme, I got an "Unknown column imageset_storedb" error.

I tried again, this time copying all the imagesets and css from prosilver, and only inheriting the template files. This seems to work.

Just wondering if I did something wrong while attempting to inherit the imagesets and theme files, or if I am limited to just inheriting template files.

You can only inherit template files.
