rake spec error. rake spec does not pass after adding destroy_spec.rb

I have tried the suggestions made as responses for questions regarding this issue. Although my errors are different from those posted by others; this seems to be the case at a glance at least.

Any advice or hint as to the direction i should pursue will be highly appreciated if a direct fix cannot be suggested.

Thank You in advance. You will find the error message returned below.

The semantics of `RSpec::Core::ExampleGroup.pending` are changing in RSpec 3.
In RSpec 2.x, it caused the example to be skipped. In RSpec 3, the example will
still be run but is expected to fail, and will be marked as a failure (rather
than as pending) if the example passes, just like how `pending` with a block
from within an example already works.

To keep the same skip semantics, change `pending` to `skip`.  Otherwise, if you
want the new RSpec 3 behavior, you can safely ignore this warning and continue
to upgrade to RSpec 3 without addressing it.

jason phillips yes https://github.com/syedakbar/todoapp . the latest commit was after completing the edit feature.

I think you did the commit but didn't push to github. I do not see the destryo_spec file. Can you push these changes up?

jason phillips i should let you know that after receiving the aforementioned errors I changed the "pending" to skip as suggested in the "todo_lists_helper_spec.rb" and "todo_list_spec.rb" files.

When you run rake spec for the most recent commit you should get the following errors:

Here is a good place to start: this is the sytax that replaces stub
