aasm manage states

Is there a way to manage the states in AASM by keeping them in a table
to normalize the data?

Not really sure, how to understand your question.

I was also wondering on how to use AASM to extend states during run-
time. Is it this what you are asking?

Well sort of. Basically you have a ton of states that are defined in
the model, is there away to take those stares and define them in the
db and have a fk pointing back to the main model. Normalized db.
Repeated data extrapolated into another table.
