Is there any chance this small patch could go into 2.0?
It just decouples the application name and destination directory.
Before the patch, your app would always be named the same
as its containing directory:
With the patch, you can name your app something different:
rails --app-name=myapp myapp/trunk
I have some automated Rails generating scripts that need this
so I'm really hoping it's not to late for something like this to make
it into trunk.
