Gem post-install messages

When you install the rspec-rails stack, the rspec gem post-install
messages
take more than 60 lines in total. Most of those messages are something
uninformative like “thank you for installing the rspec-blah”. Um, OK.
You’re
welcome, I guess?

The rspec-rails message is way too long, too. It should link to its web
page
with upgrade instructions for Rails apps. But looking at the rspec-rails
GitHub project, I can’t find the same instructions in the Readme,
Upgrade.markdown or the wiki. So the post-install message for the gem
contains the most useful upgrade documentation? That’s no good.

All good advice. Please report this last bit to
http://github.com/rspec/rspec-rails/issues so it stays on the radar.
I’ll remove the “thank you” from the other ones now.

Cheers,
David
