Plugins were using you need to know about

Auto Migrations

You won't see a-lot of migration files in this rails project because we're using an awesome plugin called auto_migrations. Instead of creating migration files you modify the schema file and the run a rake that figures out what it has to do. Its saves alot of time in development. Then when you're ready to share you app for deployment there is a rake to convert your current schema to a migration file. So you'll only have migration files for major revisions.
