If you had checked the ITP you would not have felt it was ironic.

"This is a dependency of gitlab 10.x and it will also provide
libjs-chartjs built from its source for ruby-rails-assets-chartjs."

It was originally packaged for gitlab and since we could not complete
packaging all dependencies of gitlab, this was not a priority for
buster. I was intending to get gitlab back in main including fix for
this in time for bullseye.
