We are aware about the issue and it is already fixed in git (we also
need to update ruby-sawyer and ruby-octokit to fix ruby-addressable
update to 2.7).


Though we will not be updating the unstable version as we can't
meaningfully support that version (this will require backporting so many
security issues ourseleves, upstream supports a release only for 3 months).

It is recommended to use gitlab from buster-fasttrack
(http://fasttrack.debian.net) as documented in
https://wiki.debian.org/gitlab (which is safe from issues like this).
