Please unblock package chef


The nodes are managed with chef, and during the weekend I
realized that it was not in testing. There was an RC bug against chef (FTBFS, 3
tests broken by an update to the test framework, package just worked
nevertheless) and ruby-cheffish (broken by openssl 1.1.1). I fixed both, and
they were ACCEPTED in unstable Sunday morning within less than one hour of each
other (ruby-cheffish at 11:53:21 +0000 and chef at 12:34:15 +0000)

ruby-cheffish migrated to testing before the freeze, but chef didn't
even though they have a pathological circular build dependency. So
ruby-cheffish can't be built in buster at the moment:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 builddeps:ruby-cheffish : Depends: chef but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.'

Maybe this a bug in britney; it should have migrated either both or none
of them, but not one without the other.

I would very much prefer to have this fixed by having chef migrate, since 1)
that would make my life maintaining much easier and 2) it will
save a lot of Debian users the pain of not having chef in stable. OTOH I
realize chef that the fixes came in late, so if it's unacceptable to have it in
buster, ruby-cheffish needs to be removed.

So I would ask you to

unblock chef/13.8.7-3
unstable ohai/13.8.0-1

(ohai also has a circular dependency with chef and was removed from testing
because of chef)


remove ruby-cheffish/13.1.0-2
