License?

I want to fork https://github.com/jcppkkk/OpenWithSublime to create a similar set of scripts for Visual Basic Code. Asked him about license and he pointed that his scripts are forked from https://gist.github.com/FoxColdMetal/7403764 which are forked from these. So what license would it be ? :)

I've never used Sublime Text 2 and i didn't read carefully that this post is about Sublime Text 2. I'm using Sublime Text 3 instead. So i added open with Sublime Text 2 option to the right click and don't know how to undo it. Any ideas?

I succesfully added open with sublime text 3 option by changing everything from 2 to 3 by editing the folder. You should change st2 to st3 in addition to that.

Thank you for this script!
Based on many comments on this gist, I went to create my overengineered version of this script, that can install and uninstall those changes.
I also added a way to add the path to sublime text to the current user environment variables (As I got used to run subl from command line while working on different operating systems).
And as a final touch, it will ask for admin permissions, in case the user forgot to run it.

In hopes it will be useful to someone else, I thought I'd it here: https://gist.github.com/TheZoc/e3295df094801fa937596964499ac048
