There is an alpha quality release of Package Control for Sublime Text 3 available.

Please use GitHub issues and prefix all bug titles with ST3: .
Since Sublime Text 3 no longer extracts the contents of .sublime-package files by default, and the fact that Package Control needs to read CA cert files from disk for SSL certificate verification, the only viable install method right now is via Git.

The new version of Package Control is targetted at both Sublime Text 2 and Sublime Text 3. If you are still running ST2, and can help, please spend some time testing to make sure it does not regress.
