Then TextMate 2.0 is wrong.

No, it shouldn't "ignore the case". It should look for titlecased "Info.plist" - to match what Apple looks for:


It happens that your lowercase "info.plist" might work on some people's machines, but you cannot rely on this: a folder that contains a lowercase "info.plist" can break against Apple's expectations, and this thing will then appear as a normal folder in the Finder, not a bundle. You should not _accept_ Info.plist; you should _require_ Info.plist, just like Apple.
