I have been upgrading the functional tests to the newer Rails 2 way of  
doing the tests, which reduces the amount of duplicate code in the  
tests. In doing this I have come across a bug in Rails 2.0.2, whereby  
the setup method isn't called when expected. This has been fixed in  
later versions of Rails.

I have therefore looked into upgrading rails to the latest version of  
rails, which is currently 2.1.2. There is minimal changes required. In  
doing so I will  bring the last 3 externals into the osmsvn, as they  
will probably eventually disappear with the majority of rails being  
moved from svn to git, and are unlikely to be updated in svn. It will  
also make it faster to get updates. File_column needs to be updated  
slightly for Rails 2.1.2.

I will also be updating the various config files to the newer Rails  
2.1 format, so that you will be able to do sudo rake gems:install and  
all the gems that you need will be installed. rake gems will tell you  
which gems are required and whether they are installed.	

You will need to make sure that you have gem 1.2 or later. Please also  
be warned that you will need to update your gems using sudo gem  
update. It should also be noted that Rails 2.1 introduced a change in  
the way migrations and their version numbers are handled.
