As soon as you accept code from others, you can consider it what you want, but, it's
open source at that point, and requiring a license is just silly. Yes, you are more than
free to sell it, but, so are others.

I use TM for Ruby development essentially, so
I'm more interested in a TM "product" as opposed to TM source code. Will it
be possible to still buy TM and install it as a dmg? I would rather buy TM than compile my
own version from source. Frankly, TM is really worth paying for.
Definitely, the auto-updater will continue to work and you can download a fresh copy (to
bootstrap the process) from https://github.com/textmate/textmate/downloads
Right now the builds do not require a license, but that may change, as I still consider
TextMate commercial software. I just allow people to study and change the code as an added
bonus (and hopefully TextMate will benefit long-term from community activities, at which
point we may reconsider how we should go about “selling” it).
Kind regards Allan
