Package: syncthing
Version: 1.12.1~ds1-2
Severity: important

As discussed on the go-team mailing list [1], I am filing this bug to
address an important fix in upstream since the version to be included in

There have been reports of full index retransfers on almost every
restart [2], which uses significant resources (network, disk io, ...).
The underlying bug may also cause inconsistencies in the displayed sync
completion, though that has not been observed.

I propose to apply the PR fixing this [3] with the patch attached.
Please indicate if you'd prefer an MR on salsa, then I'll do that
instead in the future.
