At one point, I thought there was an easy mechanism to choose between github forks of a particular bundle, e.g. to choose "fletcher/Markdown.tmbundle" from github instead of "textmate/Markdown.tmbundle".  That was the whole reason I followed certain conventions on github that I may or may not have done otherwise.  I thought, but could easily be mistaken, that this worked for a time in TM 1, but that was several years ago.

I recently reinstalled the OS on my development machine, and in order to get my bundle working in TM 1 and TM 2, I had to download from github and install "manually".  I couldn't find another way to do it (though I admittedly didn't spend too long looking.)

Is there a plan to make it easier to find and choose amongst various forks of bundles that are stored on github?  Or does each one have to have a unique name?  What happens if someone else creates a MultiMarkdown.tmbundle before I do? How would I "oust" them within the TextMate GUI?  Or if I fail to maintain my version, how does someone else oust me?
