Bug#955582: facter: autopkgtest needs update for new version of ruby-defaults: deprecation *warning* on stderr

Source: facter
Version: 3.11.0-3
Severity: serious
Tags: sid bullseye
User: debian-ci@lists.debian.org
Usertags: needs-update
Control: affects -1 src:ruby-defaults

[X-Debbugs-CC: debian-ci@lists.debian.org,

Dear maintainer(s),

With a recent upload of ruby-defaults the autopkgtest of facter fails in
testing when that autopkgtest is run with the binary packages of
ruby-defaults from unstable. It passes when run with only packages from
testing. In tabular form:

                       pass            fail
ruby-defaults          from testing    1:2.7
facter                 from testing    3.11.0-3
all others             from testing    from testing

I copied some of the output at the bottom of this report. I think the
only issue that the autopkgtest is showing is that you're using a
deprecated method. If you can't fix the code on the short term (best) or
run the test suite without emitting warnings (a good thing to do
anyways, autopkgtest isn't meant to catch those), please consider adding
the allow-stderr restriction for the time being.

Currently this regression is blocking the migration of ruby-defaults to
testing [1]. Of course, ruby-defaults shouldn't just break your
autopkgtest (or even worse, your package), but it seems to me that the
change in ruby-defaults was intended and your package needs to update to
the new situation.

If this is a real problem in your package (and not only in your
autopkgtest), the right binary package(s) from ruby-defaults should
really add a versioned Breaks on the unfixed version of (one of your)
package(s). Note: the Breaks is nice even if the issue is only in the
autopkgtest as it helps the migration software to figure out the right
versions to combine in the tests.
