The *infra* packages here work fine, and pass their own tests.

I explicitly said that hiera-eyaml & hiera-eyaml-gpg DO work with Ruby
3.2 even. It's only their test dependency, dev-util/aruba:0 that fails
it's own tests.

So you're implying that we are now responsible to fix the tests of every
package in our dependency tree, and you'll just remove all dependent
packages if we don't do that.

And if that's the case why didn't graaff mask dev-util/aruba:0 in
addition to hiera-eyaml & hiera-eyaml-gpg?

I didn't say keep Ruby27 at all. hiera-eyaml in the tree WORKS on Ruby
3.0 & Ruby 3.1, and passes it's own testsuite.

The fix for Aruba:0 is just tweaking the cucumber tag syntax:
"~@foo" -> "not @foo"

I'll do the better fix anyway, making hiera-eyaml use aruba:2 instead, I
really just want better communication that we're now responsible for the
entire deptree's tests.
