If you had any custom files inside askbot/skins/default/templates, move them to askbot/templates. If there were any custom files inside askbot/skins/default/media, move them to askbot/media.

The test you are mentioning at this time is checking the askbot/skins directory and reporting error if it has any subdirectories. With this change we wanted to make it easier for the developers to find the templates and the media files.

As a side-note: we are not done yet with changing the way skins work, I think we will in the near future switch to the django's default template resolution methods.
