Cowed by your fearsome threat, I used Google. Your answer is here:


Summary: It's absolutely harmless, except for cluttering the log, which I find infuriating, but the 99% don't care. Apparently Allan hand-coded 1.x's Info.plist in the old format, and it seems Lion now requires CFBundleTypeRole. The Info.plist omits the key for almost every file type (about 90) for which TextMate is an editor.

Apple probably figured that Info.plist is tricky to completely fill in by hand, and everybody would be using Xcode (which always includes the key).

I can't speak for Allan for whether a very minor bug will be fixed in 1.5 while his attention is almost exclusively on 2.x.
