All edits go there — it doesn’t matter if you edit an existing bundle or create a new one.

If however you edit an existing bundle it will create delta files, so if you wish to send pull requests you should first clone the bundle to this location.

This is third-party bundles you install via double-click (or dragging to TM). They are not auto-updated, hence outside the Managed folder.

If you edit these bundles the changes go to the first (non-pristine copy) folder (as delta files). This should allow you to manually update such bundles and keep your local changes intact.

This is where 1.x installs double-clicked bundles.

TM 1.x does not support favorites nor does it use the same indexing (so it doesn’t use Cache).
