+Overview
+========
+
+This is a mixture of a few existing themes, namely the html5boilerplate
+Wordpress theme and Breakfast, a theme from http://www.opensourcedesign.com/.
+The idea is not that you would use this theme as-is, but as with
+html5boilerplate, as a jumping off point for your own theme.
+
+Installation
+============
+(Largely a copied from Brent Hoover's [post](https://groups.google.com/group/mezzanine-users/browse_thread/thread/3345bdbef198d3c5) to GoogleGroups)
+
+For this packages it's even easier since you actually don't need to install
+anything. Just drop the contents of the directory you checked out into the
+root of your project, and add the name of the directory to your
+INSTALLED_APPS settings.
+
+Clone out **mezzanine-html5boilerplate**
+
+ git clone git://github.com/tvon/mezzanine-html5boilerplate.git
+
+Then just copy the directory out into your project like this:
+
+(Notice the the dash has changed to an underscore, probably a name like
+"mytheme" might work better)
+
+ myprojectroot/
+ /mezzanine_html5boilerplate/
+ /templates
+ /templatetags
+ /etc...
+
+Then in settings.py change your INSTALLED_APPS so it looks like so:
+
+ .....<other_apps_snipped>
+ "mezzanine.generic",
+ "mezzanine.blog",
+ "mezzanine.forms",
+ "mezzanine.pages",
+ "mezzanine_html5boilerplate",
+
+Then while you are working on modifying the theme, you will want to add:
+
+ THEME="mezzanine_html5boilerplate"
+
+Which allow mezzanine to use the theme without installing it.
