After a long time of preparation and tuning, SiteHound has been made available for free download. At the same page, services can be purchased - including installation and customization. To honor the original Drupal's GNU GPL license, the package is shipped free under the same license.

Due to the fact that SiteHound is rather imported that installed, there is no installation page currently. Below is the content of the SiteHound readme file, shipped in the distribution archive:

SiteHound is a ready-made Drupal site, developed and packaged

Sitehound Drupal is aiming to be as out-of the box as it can. Hence, it was my choice to add support for the Drupal's Color module (and SASS). There are currently 6 ready color variants in SiteHound standard theme, the default being the gray one. These color variants can be chosen in the theme settings section. This is also where a custom color set can be created with the Color module graphic interface.

About a few years ago, I had worked on a pre-configured Drupal site, that can be used as a template for building client web sites. Now, I decided to revisit that idea with Drupal 7. Drupal has a steep learning curve, and comes with a need to have it configured before it can be used. WYSIWYG installed, content types added, image fields, galleries, layouts for pages.

Using the Color module is easy - thought I could not understand how I can map colors to classes and id's . Which, I can't - you simply declare default colors, the themes colors, tell which css file to use, and then the Color module overrides default colors with counterparts throughout the whole theme. Good for recolorable themes.

Drupal Association Individual MemberI have decided to become a member to Drupal Association. Taking to consideration that I currently am the sole face of Striderlance, I decided to make it an Individual Membership. Why? Because it's cool to have that logo on your web site. It's like a stamp, that makes your site almost official. In reality, this just means that I made a donation. So let's just say it's a way of me saying "Thank you" to Drupal community.
