thank you for taking care of this!! your quick response is most appreciated. maybe, a
short follow-up question/comment. I dont have much of an IT background, so my questions
might be naïve.
anyhow: A commit is basically a change that will be "taken over" into my LaTeX
bundle with some kind of update that runs in the background?
more or less. In the context of a version control systems  a “commit” is basically a
set of (file) changes.
The LaTeX bundle on GitHub is a more up to date version of the one you installed inside
Preferences. The update of bundles is done semi- automatically. Before an automatic update
of a bundle can take place, either Michael (Sheets) — the bundle maintainer — or Allan
(Odgaard) — the main author of TextMate — runs a script that deploys the newest changes
onto the server. After that your copy of the bundle should automatically update sometimes
in the next 24 hours.
It dont know how to trigger that update manually.
You can manually update the bundle using the following steps. I would advise against that
1. Uninstall the bundle inside “Preferences”
2. Open Terminal
3. Clone the bundle into the folder `~/Library/Application\
cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Managed/Bundles/
git clone https://github.com/textmate/latex.tmbundle.git
