There are two locations bundles can be. They are:
1. ~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Bundles/
2. ~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Pristine Copy/Bundles/
The first one is the location of bundles you've created from scratch through
TextMate's bundle editor, and bundle deltas for any modifications you make
to existing bundles.
The second one is the location of bundles that you've *installed* via
TextMate (double clicking the bundle file, or "Open WIth..."). The
"Pristine Copy" is the unmodified original.
When you change a bundle command, template, setting, etc., TextMate does not
overwrite the original. Instead, it creates a copy of the bundle in the
first location, and creates tmDelta files. The tmDelta
commands/template/whatever simply overrides the pristine bundle's. This is
useful mainly for changing keyboard shortcuts or changing a command's scope,
without breaking the original author's bundle. If you goof up something
bad, all you need to do is delete your tmDelta, and you're back to the
With that said, what you should be doing is putting sql.tmbundle in the
first location. Don't install it via TextMate, copy the bundle there
yourself. When you edit bundle items in the first location, it will
actually overwrite it instead of creating tmDelta files.
And to save yourself some headaches: bundle item changes aren't written to
the disk until you close the bundle editor (at least in my experience).
