Background
Given
a file named "example_spec.rb" with:
describe "outer group" do

  it "first example in outer group" do

  end
  
  it "second example in outer group" do

  end

  describe "nested group" do
    
    it "example in nested group" do

    end
  
  end

end
Scenarios
nested groups - outer group on declaration line

Then
the examples should all pass
And
the output should contain "second example in outer group"

the output should contain "example in nested group"
nested groups - outer group inside block before example
When
