You could silence all warnings with ::ActiveSupport::Deprecation.silenced = true, but you might miss out on an important warning in one of your dependencies. It’s tempting to remove the tests altogether (the code will be burned soon too, right?), but I figured out something a little nicer a little while back in Formtastic’s test suite.
