Theme Parent Relationship


I am developing a new CS-CART theme for our business and when defining the theme, I am curious about the relationship in the manifest file when the parent theme is specified.

Most of the themes I have seen use "responsive" as the parent theme. However, I am pretty sure this relationship isn't the same as something as a child theme in wordpress where you can override templates of the parent theme inside the child theme.

Assuming I am correct (that the relationship isn't the same) - can anyone tell me when this relationship gets called upon and why it is important?

Thanks for that - I should have checked the docs... Let that be a lesson for all ;)
