New home for the rspec website

Hi all,

We’ve moved the rspec website to http://rspec.info. We want
http://rspec.org, of course, but someone is squatting on and has yet
to respond to my email :frowning:

The 1.1.0 docs are there. The 1.0.8 docs are still at
http://rspec.rubyforge.org for the time being. We’ll be archiving them
at the new site soon.

This new site is hosted on our shiny new sponsored slice at Engine
Yard, which will soon be the host for our source repository as well.

Speaking of the new source repo, we got a lot of feedback pushing
towards using git over hg, but we have some reasons that we might
prefer hg. So here’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to work in
one for a month, and then the other, and then make a decision. I’ll
follow up as to which we’re using first and how to access the repo.

Either way, we’ll continue to push changes over to the svn repo at
rubyforge, so if you don’t want to participate in our experiment you
don’t have to - though we will be asking patch contributors to so that
we can really get a feel for what it’s like to deal with patches,
updates, etc with both tools.

Cheers,
David

Cool.

You might want to change the upgrade instructions page to use the http
instead of svn urls.

Squatters make getting a decent domain name nearly impossible these
days.
When searching for a .com, I’m almost excited to violence.

Sorry for the digression.

Done. Thanks.

Sweet!
Any idea when the docs for the plain text Stories are online?
I’m struggling with something like When I POST to /posts with :name =>
“Post Title”, :body => “Body” at the moment.

cheers,

So now will you update the site more frequently than before? I
remember you had some problems with rubyforge, and would only update
the site after every release.

We’ll update clarifications and bug fixes, yes. We’re also going to be
setting up CI, and once we do we’ll include a build of the docs so
there will be a place where you can see the docs updated trunk too.
But all this in time :slight_smile:

No idea right now. Priorities :slight_smile: If anyone wants to start contributing
them, however, I’ll push 'em to the site.

I’m having trouble finding any documentation on nested from the
description on your blog they look like an alternate/hierarchical way
to do what shared groups did before. Am I thinking about them the
right way?

Also, I know that it might be competition for your upcoming book, but
the doc wouldn’t be available in a form which was more amenable to
producing nice hardcopy, would it? I’d manually massaged the old
1.0.8 version on rubyforge into a pages document, but that was a pain.
If not, I’d volunteer to help, if I can scrape up the bandwidth.

+1

If I might suggest a simple addition to the site. Just fill out the
part “(detail left out for brevity)” on the story on the front page.
IOW, put the detail back in somewhere for clarity. That would get a a
lot of folks jump-started on Stories. At least have the require
statements and list the needed helpers.

Thanks
