2.3.0 rspec:install failure on autotest directory copy #283

Rspec::Generators::InstallGenerator::copy_autotest_files fails now because there is no autotest directory in the templates directory in the gem after discover.rb was removed.

This is preventing the generator from completing the install task.

A quick solution for those with this problem is to make the missing directory in the gem. (i.e., mkdir rspec-rails-2.3.0/lib/generators/rspec/install/templates/autotest )

I'm having the same issue as @adamaig. The output I'm having is:

Could not find "autotest" in any of your source paths. Your current source paths are:

Fix bug in which rspec:install generator tries to copy autotest files
that don't exist.

How do you make the missing directory in gem?

Now when I run rspec:install it doesn't install autotest at all. Should I be worried? I'm running within rvm if that helps.

creating autotest directory solved the problem. Thanks.
