TextMate bundles are *not* following the format of an application/framework bundle.
For example in an application/framework bundle the Info.plist is placed in a subfolder named “Contents” which is not the case for TextMate bundles.
So TextMate is not wrong, it follows the standard I did 10 years ago *inspired* by Apple, but with the info.plist in lowercase (and at the root level of the bundle).
I later made TextMate 1.x accept Info.plist as well, but from day one, the standard was info.plist, and that is what I carried over to 2.0.
