    You'll want to adjust the upgrade guide on Kete.net.nz to include mention of any extra steps necessary (installation of gem?).

    The gem is only needed if you don't want to add an initializer (which is quicker and easier). The only thing needed is to update codebase like normal (nothing special, is there any point mentioning this?)

    Or would you prefer the gem? (its the same code, and you still have to edit environment.rb to load the file)

    No, lets go with the initializer since it is nice and self contained.

    Go ahead and resolve this ticket if it got reopened.

    Cheers, Walter
