[rspec-users] Why stop using mock_model in scaffold controller spec?

Hi,

In May last year, the controller specs generated with `rspec g
scaffold` were changed to use real model objects instead of
`mock_model`[1].

I'm curious why this change was made? Searching the rspec-users
mailing list archives didn't turn up anything, and rspec-devel
archives I found finish in Februrary 2011[2].

Thanks,
Mike
