Licensing of files reused from TextMate

Licensing of files reused from TextMate

Postby agriffis on Sun Feb 19, 2012 8:23 pm

I'm looking at Package/Python/Python.tmLanguage which appears to have been reused wholesale from TextMate. How is ST2 able to bundle proprietary code from another application without running into legal issues?
