This is not really a question about when to use singular or plurals. But a question about changing the Usage files for such generators as model, resource, scaffold, etc.
I personally find it hard to figure out if I should give script/ generate a singluar or a plural. I know in the past (using Rails 1.2) I gave it the wrong one and had to back it out and redo it.
My question is should I open a trac with the Usage statements with a line added such as:
"Usually the model argument is singluar"
I know there are exceptions to this -- thats why I put "Usually".
Does anyone else have trouble with this? I'm happy to submit a patch if others think it would be useful.
