RSpec support on .Net with Gallio


#1

Hi,
I’m getting ready to produce an RSpec adapter for use with the Gallio
test
automation platform (http://www.gallio.org/) on the .Net DLR via
IronRuby.

The idea is to open up RSpec to a wider audience of .Net developers who
might like to write their tests, ahem specs ;-), using a friendly
syntax
in a dynamically typed language such as Ruby.

Anyways, this is still a work in progress but I wanted to check on a
couple
of legal points:

  1. Is it cool to redistribute RSpec in source code form for
    non-commercial
    purposes? I was unable to find the RSpec license to confirm. Gallio
    itself
    is open source and is distributed using the Apache License 2.0.

  2. I would like to be able to identify the RSpec framework by way of an
    icon
    in Gallio. Unfortunately I was unable to locate an official logo.
    Assuming
    there is one, I’d like permission to include an RSpec icon in Gallio.
    The
    icon will be used in the following ways:

  • As a plugin icon when displaying a list of associated plugins.
  • As a preference icon when providing options for configuring associated
    plugins.
  • As an installed feature icon when providing options for installing
    associated plugins.
  • As a test framework icon when decribing the list of supported test
    frameworks and when presenting a report about tests that have been run
    specifically using that framework.

Do you have a suitable 16x16 and 32x32 icon file that I can use for this
purpose?

Thanks,
Jeff.

There is not an official icon now, but there will be within the next
month or so. What is your time frame for releasing this adapter?

Cheers,
