Hopefully, each new release of Buildr fixes old bugs, without breaking
anything new. (For example, 1.1.2 fixes some issues with OS/X, but doesn't
break any of our builds). But there's always the possibility that we might
break something, especially when upgrading from, say 1.1.x to 1.2.

So the idea we came up with is to freeze the Rakefile to use a particular
version of Buildr. It's not mandatory when using Buildr, but something we'd
like to do in Ode. Ideas on how to make it simpler/better are welcome.

We left it as an undocumented feature to discourage people from skipping
tests :-)

Actually, we just haven't documented the testing part of Buildr, that's
coming up in the Buildr 1.2 release, along with a few other improvements for

I think Alex volunteered to maintain a page of Buildr recipes, so you can
find all the cool tricks without weeding through pages of documentation.


Overall it was fairly painless and it does seem faster.  I would suggest
