It took pivotal 3 years to close a pull request

On Feb 9, 2011, Fat (Jacob Thornton, one of the creators on Bootstrap) opened a pull request to add beforeAll and afterAll statements to the jasmine library.

Pivotal, at the time, thought that they were just about to implement:

That tweet was from December 2010.

Since then, a couple people have come up with workarounds.

And now, over three years later, pivotal is about to release beforeAll/afterAll.
