rake dev on 2-3-stable is still broken

Hey guys, can we get this patch applied? Currently the rails app generated with 'rake dev' is broken. A patch with more than enough +1's was submitted during the rails bugmash: https://rails.lighthouseapp.com/projects/8994/tickets/3268-erd-in-environmentrb-after-running-rake-dev


What is meant by "rake dev", by the way?

rake -T with a clean 2.3.4 app doesn't show any task named "dev" on my box.


Hi Jeff,

From within the railties project, running ‘rake dev’ will generate a rails app with the current codebase and stick it in LOCAL_CHECKOUT_ROOT/rails.

It is very helpful for testing the behavior of bugs reported in lighthouse.


In case it wasn’t clear, this command is run from within a local checkout of the rails source, e.g.

git clone git://github.com/rails/rails.git

cd rails

git branch --track 2-3-stable origin/2-3-stable

git checkout 2-3-stable

cd railties

rake dev

This used to work fine but now leaves ERB in config/environment.rb of the generated app.


Ah! Thanks.
