I'm about to make a new child theme and really would like to learn a bit about making it responsive. The design/changes will be rather small.

I've done some child themes for both Twenty ten and Twenty eleven but not sure which one to choose for trying to learn responsive design. You could argue Twenty eleven is the latest but I've read somewhere Twenty ten is better maintained.

I know there are many barebones/frameworks, but these two I know quite well.

Any thoughts on this?

Care to cite a source for Twenty Ten being "better maintained?" –  EAMann Mar 1 '12 at 23:33
    
Just read somewhere but can't remember. Doesn't have to be true either. –  BoBoz Mar 1 '12 at 23:38

It's not. Go with the latest. –  EAMann Mar 1 '12 at 23:40
    
Twenty Ten will be about as well maintained as Kubrick is - that is to say, not at all. –  SickHippie Mar 1 '12 at 23:44

Both Twenty Ten and Twenty Eleven are being maintained, since both are still bundled with core. However, Twenty Eleven has newer functionality, and a better overall codebase.

I would recommend using Twenty Eleven. The only reason to use Twenty Ten, really, is that the codebase is considerably more simple.

Note: when Twenty Twelve comes out, I would recommend using it. It will focus more on simplicity, and will have some responsiveness baked in.
