Subject in the before block?

Is there a reason why I cannot access the subject in the before block?
It seems to me that anything that I have access to in the it blocks
should also be accessible in the before block.

No reason. You using rspec 1 or 2? Also, before(:each) or before(:all)?

RSpec 1 and before :each

Looks like a bug. Wanna file a report? This is rspec-1, so
http://rspec.lighthouseapp.com is fine.

Thx

Cool. Thanks.

So I did some deeper investigation and it seems that it actually is
not an issue with the before block but with ‘its’

I have an example here:

http://github.com/bcardarella/thingy

subject is updated in the before block and that update is reflected in
‘it’ but not in ‘its’

I also opened a Lighthouse ticket for this
