The only condition to use this theme for your octopress blog is that you have to set a different highlight color than the ones mentioned here. When you have chosen a highlight color, please add it to the wiki so that no one else uses it.
Highlight color: This color is used on a:hover, blockquotes etc. I'll be using it in more places so that blogs with different highlight colors look slightly different and maintain a bit of their uniqueness.

$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:shashankmehta/greyshade.git .themes/greyshade $ echo "\$greyshade: color;" >> sass/custom/_colors.scss //Substitue 'color' with your highlight color $ rake "install[greyshade]" $ rake generate
