I just wanted to point you to a Github repo I created over the weekend with the specific intention of getting people up-and-running with Sublime as quickly as possible. It basically just lists out what I believe to be the best packages for general use with a slant on front-end web development (which is what I do). Please take a look & let me know if I have made any mistakes , could have included a better package or have missed an important one.
If you'd like to edit it, please fork the repo & submit a pull request.
