Please don't do that. It appears to be a python / resource limit
issue on the gitlab-CI runners. Removing dns_hub isn't going
to make *any* difference here, we're going to run into this
again and again until we find a way to break up the tests or
get more resources on gitlab.

Revert frenzy is never a good move. Don't do it please, it's
a waste of time.
