How to name RSpec describe blocks for methods

So far our convention has been

  describe :method_name do 
    ...
  end

But this has some obvious drawback like separation of instance/class methods.
I hope we can now all agree on the unambiguous convention Mr Heinrich found in a great rspec presentation:

  • use “description” for non-methods
  • use pound “#method” for instance methods
  • use dot “.method” for class methods

This also makes prettier specdoc output :)
