After yesterday's dev's merge the manual model schema declaration doesn't work, furthermore as a side issue the describe method is fired twice for each model.
About the first part it's because there is no check if the schema is declared it only checks if it's an object. possible fix https://gist.github.com/4268504
About the second part, i haven't managed to track it down yet...
Thanks for the feedback. The fix has been merged into the dev branch. Feel free to reopen it if this issue is not completly solved.
I'm having the same issue where the schemas are demanded multiple times also, was that fixed too ?
yeap the double describe was also fixed.
