Yeah - I believe I tried to email him and the email on his blog was  

I know that he was trying to integrate this with autotest.  Last I  
checked (a few days ago), Autotest has a bug in its tracker relating  
to rspec_autotest.  So maybe this piece of software belongs in autotest.

If "getting the names right" is as a big of a deal as you guys claim  
it is, then the tool should properly be labeled "autospec".  Or maybe  
just "ln -s" it.

As for the red/green issue - someone else on the mailing list claimed  
that they could use drb w/ color - so it would be interesting to hear  
exactly what their configuration is (what rspec/rspec_on_rails setup  
they have).

Out of my own curiosity (and also for fixing the autospec bug), how  
is the red/green color generated in rspec?  Or rather, can you point  
me to the code that does so?  I've only been able to find the opts(-- 
color) line in the runner.

And finally a third thing: I'm almost done over-hauling the doc  
system to use webgen 0.4.2.  I'll post the code to the tracker when  
I'm done with that.
