TextMate Becomes Open Source

My favourite Mac-OS-X text editor just became Open Source. Developer Allan Odgaard announced this in a blog post. The sources of version 2 of TextMate that are still considered Alpha are now available on Github.

The choice of license is GPL 3 for now.  Anything related to the code base, including contributions, can be discussed at the textmate-dev list or #textmate on freenode.net.
