It's irritating to wait for the package list to be downloaded each time I install a package. Meanwhile, apparently wbond's bandwidth bill is skyrocketing...


You can change the PC cache_length setting to something greater than 300 to cache the package list longer than 5 minutes, however it will not persist restarting Sublime Text. Currently there is no way to clear the cache other than to restart ST.

The new version of PC also supports HTTP compression, which should help improve the download speed.

I was wondering whether package control supports easy contributions to st2 packages? Below is my question about a good development environment for contributions to st2 packages. Maybe it's already possible with package control but if not it would be a great feature that encourages contributions to packages. I am thinking about a command like "Package Control: Contribute to Package" that automatically creates a fork, clones it to the package folder, opens the package folder as a project in st2 and fetches any changes from the original repo when restarting st2 to keep the fork up to date.

Unfortunately at this point due to time constraints, this is unlikely. It takes quite a bit of time just to help people get HTTP connections working that I don't really feel like diving into the world of scripting git and dealing with all of those issues.

Additionally, there is a fairly big list of feature enhancements that are pending developer time: https://github.com/wbond/sublime_package_control/issues

That said, if people want to work on different enhancements and send pull requests, I'm more than happy to discuss and review them.

I've used package control for st3 without any problems. But just bought new machine, and didn't want to use tm backup, but instead went with fresh install.
So now when I try to use package control for st3, it installs, but when I use cmd+shift+p and type install, nothing shows up. Package control is installed tough.

Can any1 help me out here?

wbond, A lot of users complains our packages does not work with their version. It is bad to assume, that if there is a st3 branch, and the user is installing from ST3, to use that branch, instead of master?
Do you or anyone, have some recomendations?
