Autotest and rspec always tests everything

Is there a way to limit autotest to just what is saved? I have a small
app that as four models/controllers. and testing was fast but testing
everything. I added Restful-Authentication and it tested fine. Now
whenever I save a change to one of my custom controllers, everything
is tested including the authentication and it now takes a long time. I
always thought that AutoTest was only to test things that changed.

I am not sure if it is now just the diff that is taking all the time,
but the number of test it reports each time is very high compared to
the controller I am working on.

Any ideas?

I believe that this is the way autotest is designed. It only runs a
limited sense when there is a failure, but as soon as that failure is
passing it runs the whole suite. This is the behaviour I would expect
- otherwise I have no way of knowing if changes I make to get one
example passing have any unexpected side effects on other examples.

So then if something fails, it should just run that test each time
until it passes. Once it passes, everything is run.

Does "Pending" or "not implemented yet" have an impact? I have
several "it" statements that are pending. Does that cause it to run
everything or only only when the go between failure and pass

No relation to autotest. The only thing rspec adds to autotest is the
mappings of what spec files go w/ what code. Autotest only cares about
pass/fail. Pending is, as far as autotest is concerned, passing.

HTH.
