connect-mongo vs connect-mongodb #29

for some reason i seem to be getting this error [1] on starting a copy of this app. I tracked it down to
this bit of code in config/express.js

      secret: 'noobjs',
      store: new mongoStore({
        url: config.db,
        collection : 'sessions'

looking at the mongoStore variable in config/express.js higher in the code we find:

  , mongoStore = require('connect-mongodb')


I can't seem to figure out what the difference between connect-mongo and connect-mongodb. If I change the module used in the project to from connect-mongodb to connect-mongo the nasty error [1] goes away. From what I've been able to find the two are forks of each other, with connect-mongo being more heavily updated. Is there a reason for choosing one over the other?

If not, I would propose changing to connect-mongo as it seems to be used more and is updated more recently, and it doesn't produce that error [1].

To change simply replace [2] in `config/express.js with this:

  , mongoStore = require('connect-mongo')(express)

as well as in the package.json
