I really don't know what's going on with those hell fixtures, and start
thinking I will never find... I will try migrate all my fixtures to
factory-girl, the only problem are my six hundred examples and no time to
change all. Somebody have any link about rspec + factory-girl ? or maybe
link to any project on github that use factory-girl and rspec ?
Thanks for all help.
