Hi Melchior,

thanks for the quick reply and allowing the distribution of the map
theme with Marble. I'll push it to our list of available map theme
add-ons in a minute. That allows people to install it from within Marble.

Please contact me (or better marble-devel at kde.org) in case of any
problems or questions.
