Allow gem engines to store all Rails-specific files in "rails" subdirectory

Reported by Tore Darell | March 10th, 2009 @ 12:46 PM | in 3.x

Currently, GemPlugins that are also engines expect to find the "app" and "config" directories in the gem's root directory. I'd argue this is a bad thing because it litters the gem with Rails-specific directories when everything could be contained in the already existing "rails" directory. This patch makes GemPlugin recognise these directories as subdirectories of "rails", so instead of a structure like this:


You could have:


The first example will still work; the patch makes GemPlugin return the "/rails/*" directories only if they exist.
