migration flag

Is there anything wrong with creating an application wide flag to
signify when code is migrating?

How can I detect if a the environment is currently in migrating mode.
Does anyone have some methods for this?

I'm not sure what you mean by 'when code is migrating'. Do you mean
something like 'when a migration is in process'? Say a little more about
the problem you're trying to solve and we might be able to help.

Yeah, sorry about that.

I meant when an "rake db:migrate" is taking place.
