But now we need to update our build scripts to build with ruby 2.7.

was how we used to build earlier. With apt priority 500, it used to 
pick up ruby 2.7, but now with a lower apt priority it picks up ruby 
2.5 from buster. I need to figure out the best way to force ruby 2.7. I 
think forcing it via gem2deb may be the best option.
