Woohoo! Congratulations all round!

Just looking through that, I spotted some odd syntax:

Single database query:

companies = Company.find(:all, :include => {
:groups => { :members=> { :favorites } } })
While the feature is undeniably cool, I can’t work out how it works…
What’s going on there? How does {:favorites} get parsed in that
context? IRb gives me a compile error for {:favorites} in Ruby 1.8.2…
Is that a 1.8.4 thing?

No it a rails thing…

It reads find Company, join on groups and join on members and favorites

:groups,:members,:favorites are the names of some associations…

I guess I’ll have to delve into the source to see what it’s doing.

It’s a bad example. Should be { :members => :favorites }, not
{ :members => { :favorites } }

I know that… I’m not querying the functionality. It’s how it works
that I’m intrigued by. Is {:favorites} a default-valued hash? A proc?
A bad example?
