Hi

Two questions:

Anyone using Merb here, and writing specs for it?  (I've just started  
tonight, so I'm figuring stuff out as I go along.)

And WDYAT of their spec extensions[1]?  Specifically their "given"

   given "a item exists" do
     request(resource(:items), :method => "POST",
       :params => { :item => {  }})
   end

   describe "resource(:items)" do

     describe "GET", :given => "a item exists" do
       before(:each) do
         @response = request(resource(:items))
       end

       it "has a list of items" do
         pending
         @response.should have_xpath("//ul/li")
       end
     end

   end

Have to say I was a bit surprised to learn they'd monkey-patched  
RSpec...
