[Ros-release] Are pre-release tests supported for dry stacks on Groovy?

I tried to run Groovy pre-release tests on a couple of dry stacks I
maintain. They all failed with similar messages.

My simple unique_identifier stack has an explicit dependency on "ros".
Is that no longer supported?

Trying to separate signal from noise in the console output, the
failure seems to be here somewhere:
