Tip: Automatically annotate models after each run of rake db:migrate and rake db:rollback

Version A

In Rails 3 using as gem - also see the discussion on this issue

# lib/tasks/auto_annotate_models
# Annotate models on each run of rake db:migrate
Dir["#{Gem::Specification.find_by_name("annotate").full_gem_path}/**/tasks/**/*.rake"].each {|ext| load ext} if Rails.env.development?

Version B

This way was tested with the current master version of annotate (2.6.0.beta1), as the one propose in Version A) did not work properly.

# Gemfile
# Annotate models in the current master version from github
gem 'annotate', github: 'ctran/annotate_models' # This syntax works with Bundler 1.2+
# lib/tasks/auto_annotate_models.rake
if Rails.env.development?
  task :set_annotation_options do
    # Just some example settings from annotate 2.6.0.beta1
