Improve the 'ditz init' experience

« ditz project page

I decided to use ditz on one of my personal projects, but it fails and, as a new user, leaves me a bit bewildered.

i'm confused about how to enter initial components. Entering a single word causes 'ditz add' to fail:

/var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/ditz-0.5/lib/ditz/model-objects.rb:124:in `validate!': undefined method `name' for "bookme":String (NoMethodError)

from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/yaml.rb:143:in `map'

--- project.yaml --- !,2008-03-06/project

name: bookme

version: "0.5"

components: bookme

releases: []

Perhaps nothing entered for a component should default it to a downcase version of the project name? Either way, I'm not clear on what I should enter here.

Now it works for me. I'll leave this issue open until the others who've experienced it have a chance to chime in.

ok, you're the second person to notice this and i can't figure out what's going on. can you try it with the ditz in git master?
