This are moving fast out there. Mapbox folks have released a new product
in september 2014 named "Mapbox studio classic":

https://www.mapbox.com/mapbox-studio-classic/#linux

The code is still free:

https://github.com/mapbox/mapbox-studio-classic

It seems to be a fork of tilemill:

https://github.com/mapbox/mapbox-studio-classic/blob/mb-pages/docs/0000-01-01-common-questions.md#how-is-mapbox-studio-related-to-tilemill#user-content-how-is-mapbox-studio-classic-related-to-tilemill

It looks like there's some sort of mapbox.com locking however:

https://github.com/mapbox/mapbox-studio-classic/blob/mb-pages/docs/0000-01-01-common-questions.md#can-i-use-git-with-a-style-or-source-project

And there are certainly new copyright issues, if only with the bundled
fonts:

https://github.com/mapbox/mapbox-studio-classic/blob/mb-pages/docs/0000-01-01-common-questions.md#what-cancant-i-do-with-pro-fonts

Then there's mapbox studio:

https://www.mapbox.com/mapbox-studio/

... which is basically a web rewrite of mapbox:

https://www.mapbox.com/help/upgrading-from-classic/

It's currently in private beta, so not much use there.

But it may be worthwhile to wait a while before doing any more work
here...
