rake spec fails without ENV['SKIP_RAILS_ADMIN_INITIALIZER']='false' #1562

I understand why this exists and why it is set to true by default, however passing this environment variable when running rake spec is laughably horrible user experience.

IMNSHO, rails_admin should always load itself in test environment unless explicitly set.

For the record, adding ENV['SKIP_RAILS_ADMIN_INITIALIZER']='false' to the top of your spec_helper doesn't make the warning go away, but my specs pass.

haha, never thought about that one. I just use rspec
Anyway we don't need it anymore because the model configurations being lazy loaded, the performance hit is negligible.

@bbenezech does that mean it will go away soon?

Just commented on #1362 as well, found via searching, but this probably belongs here more.

Please remove this line of output. This does not belong in STDOUT and having a gem which taints STDOUT like this is extremely bad.

This breaks the ability to confidently pipeline scripts or rake tasks in projects that use Rails Admin.

This muddles output to other code which expects the first line of output to be relevent to the code executed (for example: nagios monitoring tasks)

Especially if this code is no longer required, please kill it! At the very least this should be output to STDERR, since it is an error (warning) and not part of the users expected code output.
