Anyone know what the filesystem would be for sshfs? The reason I ask is
that MacFUSE is used, and I suspect that might confuse things.
Just downloaded build 1589 and found this in the release notes:
[CHANGED] OakDocumentDisableFSMetaData can now be an array of file systems for which the use of extended attributes should be disabled.
That sounds extremely useful, but I'm not quite sure what the syntax should be. Take my thumb drive, for instance:
/dev/disk3 on /Volumes/THUMB (msdos, local, nodev, nosuid, noowners)
If I wanted to disable metadata on this drive would I specify the device (/dev/disk3), mount point (/Volumes/THUMB), file system type (msdos), or something else? Can you provide an example, please?

Allan wrote about autocomplete and F5 :
"You can use 'escape' to auto-complete. Although it's not exactly the same as the systems function (the system brings up a menu, TextMate just inserts the first match and lets you cycle between matches with [shift] escape)."
1) Almost every text box you use is a Cocoa text box ( Safari web form boxes, the documents in Pages or TextEdit, the email composer in Mail, etc...) and F5 is used to autocomplete words ( there is a bug with french dictionnary because if you complete Étu you lose the accent and you get Etude )
The text boxes in Textmate are not Cocoa however, why F5 and not F6 or another key in the Text Bundle?
F5 is used by Apple’s Cocoa text system so perhaps it's preferable to respect the Apple guide.
I now I can change the shortcuts or modify / create keybindings.dict but ...
How many shortcuts of the Apple’s Cocoa text system are modified by TextMate?
2) I suppose there is a technical problem to implement the F5 functionality but F5 is very interesting with TextEdit or Page because the completion with the dictionnary is fine and the language is auto detected, ⎋ and ⌥ ⎋ are fine ( ⌥ ⎋ has always a bug with LaTeX ) but is it possible in TextMate to implement the F5 functionality?
I am trying to create a foldingStopMarker for Python language as '^\s*##' but it
seems to be triggered only when I don't have any space before ##. This seems to
be the problem with any stop marker beginning with whitespace. Is there a way
I noticed when scrolling left to right on pages that the line numbers and gutters also goes away with it. Is there a add on or something to make it stay no matter where I am in the code horizontally?
Thanks for any help or advice on this,

As described on stackoverflow () I hit a difference in behaviour, from the point of view of the program invoking "mate -w", when TextMate is quit using Cmd-W versus Cmd-Q.
This may be a Snow Leopard oddity, but does anyone here know what might cause the caller to continue after Cmd-W but not after Cmd-Q?
PS. Please feel free to answer here or on stackoverflow for added kudos.
I just upgraded to Snow Leopard and TM 1.5.9.
Formerly you could scroll page by page up and down in the document by pressing:
ALT + UP / DOWN
If you want to jump to top / end of document you used CMD + UP / DOWN
Now its the same for both combination, even with the ALT combination I jump to top and end.
is it Snow Leopard or the version 1.5.9 of Textmate that brings that behaviour?
How can I easily change it back to "normal"?
thnx in advance!
ps. thanks to the community to bring background transparency to TM as a general feature! I was astonished and exited to see that today!
I am somewhat confused about what the best practices are to use and develop bundles theses days.
What I used to do was to have a checkout of the subversion directory in "/Library/Application Support/TextMate". That allowed me to easily apply fixes and commit them. And when I wanted to use a bundle from "Review" I just created a symlink of that bundle to "~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Bundles".
Now we have some bundles left in subversion, many bundles migrated to github. We got Allan's "bl" tool (not sure what to do with "Managed", I made "Pristine Copy" a symlink to it), and we got Hans' "GetBundles" which seems rather nice too.
I guess gone are the days where a single "svn update" would get you the latest of all bundles.
What do you use and how?
I am also not sure how to develop/change bundles that are hosted on github. My current approach is:
- Delete the bundle from "Pristine Copy" (if it is there)
- Create a fork on github (or if it is a new bundle create a new repository)
- Clone that fork to "Pristine Copy"
- Make changes, push and send a "pull request" to the owner of the original bundle.
What are the recommended/best working workflows?
This talk about using github and GetBundles and what-not got me curious: GetBundles often shows multiple bundles with the same name. Often these are in different repositories (Official, Review, or Github) but sometimes there are dups within one repository. As of right now there are two AppleScript bundles on Github, the only visible difference being the date and author's name. Is there any way, currently or planned, to sort this out? Okay, I assume the bundles in Review are undergoing, well, review and may or may not be ready for use. But when there are dups in Official and Github, is there any way to tell which is preferred?
