Don't require files in random order

A common pattern in Ruby is to to require all files in a specific diretory, using something like

Copy
Dir.glob(Rails.root.join('lib/ext/**/*.rb')).each do |filename| require filename end

However, this causes files to be required in an order determined by the file system. Since load order can be important, this may lead to different behavior on different machines which are hard to debug.

Simply add a .sort:

Copy
Dir.glob(Rails.root.join('lib/ext/**/*.rb')).sort.each do |filename| require filename end
