Contextual validations seems to be failing. I'm uncertain if this is an issue with rspec or with the way that the validate_presence_of method is implemented.

Here is my test in rspec

describe "contextual validation" do
  context "article is not published" do
    before { subject.stub(:published?) { false } }
    it { should_not validate_presence_of(:publish_at) }
  context "article is published" do
    before { subject.stub(:published?) { true } }
    it { should validate_presence_of(:publish_at) }

Here is the validation on the model:

validates :publish_at, presence: true, if: :published?

Can anybody else replicate this?

Replicated. Reverted to using 'errors_on' method and testing both a valid and invalid model.

@ekampp Do you still have this error?

For me, this bug is still present.

I haven't seen any fix for this, no.
