I wanted to check this with you. I have an rspec example that checks
the correct expiration date set on an object. The expiration is set in
the model with
expires_on = Time.now + next_duration[phase]
where next_duration can either be in units of seconds or n.days (should
be the same thing). n can be 3, 7, 25, or 30 days.
in my example I check an interval because the two events are not
simultaneous between when the model calls Time.now and when the rspec
example calls it:
rhs = expires_on < (Time.now + (n +200)) lhs = expires_on > (Time.now + (n -200)) (rhs && lhs).should be_true
I find that if n takes the expires_on across the daylight savings time
change then the model and rspec are off by 1 hour.
Why is there a difference? Are Rails and RSpec referencing different
Thanks for your help,
