rake # 339 tests, 323 assertions, 0 failures, 0 errors (some warnings
but that's ok)
rake gem
gem install pkg\rspec-0.6.4.gem
spec examples

all of this works fine on WinXPProSP2 + ruby 1.8.4 (2006-04-14) [i386-mswin32]

what's OCI?

The failing_examples are supposed to fail and the rake script is
supposed to account for it and continue. However, this is a little
tricky and no effort has been put in to make this work on windows.

What exact command are you running and what errors do you see? (Run
Rake with -v -t)

It all looks good to me. pre_commit doesn't pass, but that's the same
as on trunk. It's related to windows things, not the rspec code.

I think it's ok to merge the branch to trunk.
