Your theme has been partially reviewed against these requirements: https://make.wordpress.org/themes/handbook/review/required/

As part of the new theme directory guidelines, reviewers may now close tickets if a theme has 5 or more issues. This is part of our long term goals to improve the theme quality and shorten the queues.
You can read more about this change here: https://make.wordpress.org/themes.

Please do not get discouraged by the ticket being closed. We want you to resubmit your theme, but we do ask that you spend more time making sure that your theme meets all the requirements.

You can upload your update here: https://wordpress.org/themes/upload/

Because of the large number of themes waiting for review, we might not be able to follow up immediately. We will review your update when your theme reaches the top of the review queue.

If you have questions you can ask them here or in the #themereview channel on Slack.

The coding standards are not required to pass the review, but they can be helpful when developing your theme.

The code reference library is very useful when you want to know more about WordPress functions, classes, hooks and methods. It can help you determine if a function needs to be escaped or not, or if a function you have planned to write is already available.
