[rspec-users] ***SPAM*** RSpec with devise test helpers

Is Devise included in your application_controller yet? The line this
appears to be complaining about appears to be one that creates the
fake Warden instance and tries to merge in the Devise.warden_config


That is assuming the current version of Devise on github is 3.0.0.

I am wondering if you have Devise in your controllers and if it is
configured yet.
