Hi Hans,

This certainly helps! Did some further experiments (detailed below) to clarify the role of the 'Pristine Copy' dir.

Thanks a lot,

Auto-update seems to work, other parts of GetBundles don't work on my system. e.g. listing bundles in the repository never finishes.

From this statement, below help text and the meaning of pristine (doesn't it mean 'fresh, unspoiled'?) I got confused. On a 2nd machine I cleaned out all TextMate stuff and installed a new version and all additional packages in '/Library/.../Bundles'. It then seems to install my local changes in '~/.../Bundles' though, not in '~/.../"Pristine Copy"/Bundles'.

Auto-update too seems to write to the '.../"Pristine Copy"/Bundles' directory (below the command, slightly updated, as on my system). Not sure how '/Library/.../Bundles' , '~/.../Pristine Copy/Bundles' and '~/.../Bundles' exactly get merged (I assume somewhat like specialization in inheritance, the latter being the most specific), but given that on this 2nd system '~/.../Pristine Copy/Bundles' was empty, auto-update didn't do anything.

After installing the additional packages in ~/.../Pristine Copy/Bundles' and adding the 'echo "$f"' in the auto-update for loop, auto-update shows:

This makes more sense. The final message disappeared after I changed the assignment into a comparison operator in notify.rb. Maybe this was caused by the newer version of Ruby on SnowLeopard.


5.2 Editing Default Bundles / Items

Some of the default items may not be to your exact liking, for example the coding style in snippets may differ from yours, so you may want other tab triggers, key equivalents, or similar modifications.

If you edit a default item the difference will be stored in ~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Bundles. These are then merged with the default version so your changes will be effective even after upgrading TextMate. All new items you create also end up in this location.

Bundles or bundle items which you install by dragging them to TextMate or double clicking will be installed in~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Pristine Copy/Bundles. Editing these will also result in only the differences being stored in ~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Bundles, meaning that if you later get a new version of this third party bundle, you can safely install this one on top of the old one (by dragging it to TextMate) and again your changes will be preserved.
