hiera data, the catalog fails to compile as the sshd package isn't in the
Am I just missing some YAML syntax to stop the hash from being overwritten,
or am I perhaps misunderstanding the behaviour I'm seeing here? I did test
manually merging the hashes in the YAML file and that did indeed 'fix' the
