I've got a couple small patches that are quite helpful and minimally
invasive that I'd love to get out of my vendor/rails so I can start
work on new patches with a clean edge rails (without checking out
another copy). If any core member has time to take a look at these
and either commit these or give me some feedback I'd really appreciate
Koz looked at this one and asked for a test 3 weeks ago, which I
provided, but I haven't heard back. This one is particularly useful
for development because without it, Template Missing errors don't
actually say what template was requested (broken since the addition of
multiple controller view paths).
This one's been out there for several months with nary a comment
(other than "not so tiny", which I dispute). It makes XML testing
with assert_select work. The only condition under which it would
break someone's existing tests would be if they were sending content
type application/xhtml+xml (which no one does because IE doesn't
understand it) AND they were producing invalid XHTML (an unlikely
combination to say the least). So it seems like a no-brainer to me.
Jamis even blogged about a workaround
(http://weblog.jamisbuck.org/2007/1/4/assert_xml_select), so it's
surprising there's been no comment.
Thanks in advance,
