My CoffeeScript mode is currently (2.0b8) being rejected when being installed through manager because it "needs to be repackaged according to guidelines". I can not find these anywhere ...

It just needs to be in a folder called CoffeeScriptMode inside the .zip file. Pardon the confusing error message—I meant to let you know about it before 2.0b8 since yours is the only mode (and the message is correct for libraries and tools, since it's documented in those guidelines).

Hm .. i tried that and it reported that the download does not contain any files to add. What i had was:

CoffeeScriptMode.zip/
    CoffeeScriptMode/
        mode/
            CoffeeScriptMode.jar
            ...
        theme/
        keywords.txt
        ...

In the version that's linked here:
https://raw.github.com/fjenett/coffeescript-mode-processing/master/release/CoffeeScriptMode.zip

If you run "unzip -l CoffeeScriptMode.zip" on it, you'll see that there's no parent folder.

I'll actually keep this open since I do need to write those guidelines...

Relieved you got it working, though!
