> I mean sure if we were starting now we might move to cucumber

I'm going to go further, and say that I don't want to move to cucumber at all, even for new stuff, or even as a long-term goal. I find the cucumber tests hard to read, much more so than normal ruby-code integration/system tests.  I don't find it useful to write "When I visit the home page" instead of `visit root_path`. And I don't think we have any non-technical people reading the tests anyway.

https://www.jackkinsella.ie/articles/why-bother-with-cucumber-testing is a relevant read.

So I'd prefer to see the cucumber tests implemented as normal system tests.
