We are currently having a Magento 2 theme developed, they are starting in a few days. I know nothing about theme development so I am trying to make sure it is being done in the best way.
Should they develop the theme as a parent theme or a child theme of blank or luma?
Which is a more common way of doing it?
Since M2 is still fairly new and still working out different issues, we plan on keeping it updated with future releases as the bugs get corrected. Any advantages or disadvantages of creating a theme as a parent theme with these plans?
Looking for some experienced thoughts on this. Thanks for the input!
